Football supporters are the heart and soul of any club; they are its lifeblood. Their presence is always felt or needed the most when a team goes through a challenging period. Their consistent support for the club can empower the players and coaching staff to continue going through the maze.
Aduana Stars suffered a shocking 2-0 defeat to Asante Kotoko at home. However, the picture that stands out from that encounter is how the grandstands were packed to full capacity with Aduana fans singing their hearts out.
Even when their team was staring at defeat, they stayed at the stadium and supported them until the very last minute. The fans backing Asare Bediako in the manner they did was truly special. It shows their passion and love for the beautiful game is inspiring for the club and sponsor 10bet Africa.
The fans were neither angry nor frustrated by the defeat; they understood that their team needed them now more than ever. Aduana is going through a rough patch at the moment, having lost two games on the spin.
The two losses do not take away from the club’s great start in the Ghana Premier League. Aduana Stars are in third place with 20 points. Above them are Asante Kotoko and King Faisal, who are in first and second with 23 points.
Aduana’s exemplary form in 2021 allowed them to be in the title race; the two defeats have not hampered their cause for the title. What Aduana will have to do now is find a way to rediscover the form that saw them win six games in a row.
In that run, Aduana was unplayable, dominating games, playing tactical possession football, scoring goals and keeping a clean sheet. They now have to go back to the basics, keep things simple, and regain their confidence.
The Aduana Stars players have the full faith of their fans, coach, management and 10bet Africa, which should ease off any pressure they have been holding. The next mission for the players is to return to winning matches.
On Sunday, 9 January, Aduana Stars will visit Elmina Sharks in what will be a crucial encounter for them. This will be a difficult match in terms of how they will treat the opponent.
Elmina Sharks are at the bottom of the league in 18th place. They have lost their last five games; they have the overall worst record in the league. They have only collected seven points and are the candidates to be relegated.
Aduana should give the Sharks the respect they deserve despite their current form. This is the perfect game for Aduana to bounce back from the two defeats. They should look to use this game as a platform to find their form.
A 3-0 win from Aduana Stars will bring a smile to their loyal fans.
