Accra Great Olympics continue to hunt for their third league title in their history as skipper Gladson Awako believes they can make that dream transpire into reality if they get good officiating from referees in their subsequent matches.


The 'Dade' outfit are enjoying a two game winning streak as at now marking it with a crucial 2-3 away triumph over WAFA last Friday thanks to a late winner from striker Manan Mudasiru to grind them all the three maximum points in Sogakope.

Coach Annor Walker's men commenced the second round on a good note picking four points from their direct competitors Medeama SC and Kotoko before they had to be stunned and humiliated by Legon Cities and Ebusua Dwarfs which nearly dropped them out of the title race. 
But, a quick response as they recorded two consecutive wins over Liberty Professionals at home and against the Academy boys just last week has brought them back to contend as they currently sit 3rd on the standing with 40 points, trailing the leaders with just a point.
Speaking in an interview, the former T.P Mazembe midfielder believe they haven't been lucky when it comes to officiating in most of their games reason they nearly bottled the league but  noted with so much optimism that, they will clinch the league title if they get the best out of the referees going forward. He said; 
"There are still more games to be played because there are soo many games to be played and the league is very competitive,” he said in an interview.
“Olympics have had unfair officiating this season and if things go on fairly we can win the title. Most of the games we have lost away was due to bad officiating."
The 30 year old has been sensational since joining Olympics helping the club immensely with his experience and was part of the Black Satellites team that conquered both Africa and world by winning the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt.
Another crunchy encounter at stake as Great Olympics look set to host Aduana Stars at the Ohene Gyan Stadium on Thursday evening in a week 24 showdown of the ongoing campaign.
