Baba Mahama’s 31st goal was the decider as Ebusua Dwarfs stumble for the first against Kotoko since 2002.
Asante Kotoko started the encounter with bright intention, showing glimpses of what they have for the day. Jackson Owusu led Kotoko’s charge controlling the midfield with sheer brilliance.
Kotoko’ supremacy counted in the 31st minutes when Emmanuel Gyamfi’s located Baba Mahama to score the only goal of the encounter.
The result means the visitors have made it two in a row after their Sunday’s win against WA All Stars.
Hearts of Oak title chase hit the rocks after they stumbled at the Accra sports stadium to rejuvenated Ashgold.
The Phobians were in high spirit going into encounter but their hopes were dashed in the 11th minutes when Daniel Gonzar capitalized on poor defensive display to shun the home side.
C.K Acknoor chargers were the stronger of the two side as they marched the Phobians in all departments of the game.
Hearts resumed the second half with purposefulness, hurrying the Miners but the determined Ashgold side stood tall to strip Hearts of the three as they did in the corresponding fixture in Obuasi.
