The home side effected to two quick changes with 20 minutes left, George Ansong coming on for Godfred Atuahene and Mubashar Issah replacing Stanley Anigyei.

The changes proved vital as Liberty grabbed the second goal of the day through youngster Simon Appiah.

With victory almost secured, the home side changed their approach, sending more players back to preserve their lead as they grabbed their first win of the season.
