Kotoko Go Third With Dwarfs Win

Kumasi Asante Kotoko have climbed to the third position on the Ghana Premier League standings after defeating Ebusua Dwarfs 1-0 on Wednesday afternoon.

The side from Kumasi yesterday played as guests to the match-day seven opponents at the Cape Coast Stadium to clear an outstanding match in the ongoing GPL season.

Although both teams played some good football and created a number of chances in the first half, neither side could find the back of the net and had to go into the break on level pegging.

After recess, Asante Kotoko looked the better side as they enjoyed the lion’s share of possession.

Following several attempts at goal, the visiting team finally got the breakthrough in the 70th minute when defender Christopher Nettey found the back of the net with a decent strike.

With the team holding on to win 1-0 at the end of the 90 minutes, Asante Kotoko have now climbed to third on the Ghana Premier League standings.

The record champions are now just a point behind leaders Karela United.
