Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC played one of their two Ghana Premier League outstanding game against Accra Great Olympics in Accra on Thursday afternoon.
The Red and Whites were pretty much unconvincing on the day as they failed to make their presence felt in the game as the fans would want from them ahead of their CAF Champions League clash with Al Hilal Omdurman.
Olympics on the other hand were on top of the match and played some beautiful football on the day and should have been up by a goal or two before the break but failed to capitalize on their chances early in the game.
After a dominant display in a goalless first half, Olympics picked up from where they left off in the first half as they continued to outplay the Porcupine Warriors.
On the 54th minute mark, Gladson Awako provided a master class and a moment of magic when he dribbled past the Kotoko defenders to send in a lovely cross into the back post as Michael Yeboah headed home the opening goal of the match to put the visitors 1-0 up.
Awako was a delight to watch throughout the match and was a thorn in the flesh of the hosts but his subsequent crosses and passes could not be finished by his colleagues.
Few chances were created by Kotoko after they went down but Emmanuel Gyamfi and William Opoku fluffed their effort at goal.
The Porcupine Warriors suffered their first defeat of the season in four games as Olympics picked their second win of the campaign after beating Kotoko 1-0 in Accra on Thursday.
