Captain of Tamale Utrecht division one team, Vincent Deyi says Utrecht were back to their best on Sunday afternoon as they beat city rivals Dynamos FC 3-1 to inch closer to qualify for the Middle league.

Vincent who sat out of the game due to injury watched his colleagues put up a splendid performance to upset the relegation threaten side at the Academy complex to set up a mouth watering final two round of matches against Guan united and  Wa Africa united for places in Zone 1A.

Despite having a good record at home this season with only one draw and five wins, the Red and Whites have come under a lot of criticism as they have slipped five points behind league leaders RTU in the second tie competition in Ghana and yet to pick maximum points away.

Speaking after Sunday’s game, Vincent said Utrecht deserved the victory against Dynamos and feels his side's performance was of the level people have come to expect of them in recent years.

"We defeated a very difficult rival," he told "After two very serious slip-ups [in the league against RTU and Bolga All Satrs] when we didn’t play well, today we saw the Utrecht that people expect to see.

“We played well throughout and achieved our objective of getting the results.

“Despite their goal I don't think the tie was ever in danger [from our perspective].

“We knew we had to get a goal to calm ourselves down because of the potential they have."

Mumuni Gamel's men have won only two of their last four games in the competition since the resumption of the second round but Vincent is insistent that his side remain very much in the chase for qualification to the middle league.

"We are the first to criticize ourselves. We know we did not do things like we should have, but that does not mean the league is lost because there is still two matches to play for and anything can happen."

Vincent is expected to return to the set up after the injury on Sunday against Guan United.
