Bechem Chelsea yesterday failed to secure the maximum three points at home when they drew goalless with Kumasi-based King Faisal in their Glo Premier League mid-week match at their adopted Sunyani Coronation Park.
The match did not live up to its pre-match billing as both teams failed to utilise the numerous chances they created till Accra-based class one referee, Selas Nii Okai, whistled for the end of the first half.
Immediately after recess both teams made some substitutions as Chelsea’s new Dutch coach, Peter Dlbessch, brought on Ernest Adoma and Richard Atika for Frank Nyarko and Wilson Andoh on the 49th and 62nd minutes respectively, while King Faisal also introduced Abedi Sarfo and Thomas Avorgbedor for Osei Bonsu and Aziz Ibrahim respectively on the 78th and 90th minutes.
The stadium was rocked by applause on the 74th minute when Chelsea goalie, Abubakar Iddrisu, saved a thunderbolt from Prince Arko some few metres outside the vital area to deny the visitors the opener, while substitute Richard Atika of Chelsea also shot wide from close range on the 66th minute.
