Kumasi Asante Kotoko, a local football club, stretched their lead by two points ahead of Accra Hearts of Oak, after week 14 fixtures of the GLO Premier League were played yesterday.
The porcupine warriors played as guest to Liberty Professionals at the Accra Sports Stadium in a late kick off, beating them 2 – 1.
Kotoko begun very well in the evening, winning all the fifty- fifty balls, dictating the pace of the game and controlling the midfield in the entire first half but wasted most of the opportunities that fell their way.
Kofi Nti Boakye however got the first goal of the night in added time of the first half after a pass from Nathaniel Asamoah.
Richard Yeboah got the second goal for the porcupine warriors in the 46th minute of the second half after he received a pass from Kofi Nti Boakye in the penalty box.
Liberty got a consolation goal through a penalty awarded them by referee Joe Baffoe, after James Abban was fouled in the penalty box.
Liberty tried very hard to secure the equalizer, but Kotoko stood resolute in defense, until the end of the match.
