Striker Bernard Ofori scored the only goal of the match as Medeama beat Karela 1-0 to progress in the MTN FA Cup.
Ofori first half strike was the Mauve and Yellows needed to advance to the Round of 32.
The derby win is a sweet one for assistant coach Hamza Obeng, who is steering the wheel in the absence of his boss Samuel Boadu.
The second-in-command handed handed first start for striker Bernard Ofori and midfielder Jasper Nimo.
He left the club’s leading top scorer Prince Opoku-Agyemang out of his team as he gave some fringe players the opportunity.
And the tactical approach from the gaffer paid off after the side recorded an important win to progress in the Cup match.
It’s a massive boost for the side ahead of the Ghana Premier League fixture against Great Olympics at home on Monday.
