Tano Bofoakwa head coach, John Eduafor, affirms believe in his charges despite the Sunyani based club lingering around the drop zone in the business end of the season.

Boafoakwa Tano, who were one of three teams to make their way from the Access Bank Division one league to Ghana’s top flight after 16 years in the wilderness, seem to be cantering to the lower tier of Ghana football sooner than expected.

The Hunters are living in disbelief and would prefer to pinch themselves to have a feel if their current perilous predicament is past them or not, given the marvelous start they enjoyed in their first 3 games amongst Ghana’s elite clubs.

However, since the dismissal of former coach Frimpong Maanso after the brawl that unfolded between Tano and fierce rivals Nsoatreman in the Bono Derby last year, John Eduafor – who replaced Frimpong Maanso – has had to deal with a varying number of conflicting off-field issues, which inadvertently seems to have taken a toll on the on-field results.

Tano, who for a while had title aspirations in the early part of the season, are currently threatened by the prospect of being booted out of the league due to their poor run of form and results.

The Sunyani Based side are in 16th position, 4 points clear of Hearts of Lions in 17th and a point behind Karela in 15th, leaving head coach John Eduafor with a glimmer of hope to beat the drop.

“It’s not over. We still have about 11 matches to play and we are hoping that, we will win certain matches, build up points, and be able to survive. So yes, we still have the hope that we would survive.” He said 

Not even a semi-final berth in the FA cup for Tano, who went all the way to the shootout with lower ranked side Sky Fc, is looking enough to turn the tide in a relatively underwhelming season.

The Tano rescue mission starts immediately, as the next 10 matches would prove decisive for their ‘premier league status’. With the hunters hinging on the outcome of the games for survival, it starts with a trip to Accra to take on the unpredictable Accra Lions.
