Dreams FC scored first through Abdul Aziz’s effort on the 40th minute without a comeback from visitors at first half. However, shortly after the start of the second half, Echeta Ugonna found the net to equalize for the visitors.

After receiving a double yellow in the 81st minute, Seth Agyeman was handed a suspension, opening the home team for further exploitation. Consequently, the visitors found a late winner through Godwill to send them back home victorious.
