The Academy Boys now hold a four-point lead in the topflight thanks to an away win and Kotoko's home stalemate

While Asante Kotoko's woes continue, there was just no stopping for Wafa on matchday 11 of the Ghana Premier League.

Having taken over the top spot in midweek, Wafa were again on the joyous side on Sunday, thanks to a 2-1 away victory over Elmina Sharks. Samuel Arthur's late consolation was not enough to undo Daniel Lomotey's double at the Nduom Sports Complex.

The Academy Boys sit four points above second-placed Asante Kotoko, who were held to a goalless draw by Ebusua Dwarfs at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

Third on the table and now with two games in hand, Aduana Stars were denied the chance to claim three points on Sunday as their game with Great Olympics was called off in the 33rd minute due to torrential rains in Accra. The match has been rescheduled for Monday.

Likewise, the fixture between Tema Youth and Wa All Stars at the Tema Park has been postponed to Monday due to a downpour.

At the Golden City Park, Stephen Sarfo's double was enough to ensure Berekum Chelsea a 2-0 win over Medeama.

Nana Antwi Manu was the hero at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park as Bechem United beat Inter Allies 1-0.

Liberty Professionals recorded their fourth draw in a row, having held new boys Bolga All Stars to a 1-1 stalemate in Tamale. Bernard Arthur's goal equalized Noah Neequaye's opener for the newly-promoted.

And in the only game on Saturday, Paul Acquah got the goal as Hearts of Oak claimed a 1-0 victory over Ashanti Gold at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium. The Phobians sit fifth on the log ahead of next week's welcome of Elmina Sharks.
