Asante Kotoko 0-1 Inter Allies: Debutants shock Ghana giants

Mas-Ud Didi Dramani - Asante Kotoko

Herbert Addo’s charges ruined the Easter celebrations of the Porcupine Warriors who were hoping for a win to be in a better position to retain the league title

Ghana Premier League debutants Inter Allies kept it late to shock giants Asante Kotoko in a 0-1 crucial win to move to sixth place on the log.

The Tema-based side who struggled to beat the drop in the first half of the 2013-14 season have witnessed a remarkable improvement in the second round and have so far gone 10 games unbeaten under the tutelage of veteran coach Herbert Addo.

The Porcupine Warriors needed a win prior to their next game to be in a pole position to be declared champions-in-waiting but must wait a little longer till the subsequent fixtures of the elite division are honoured.

Inter Allies managed to hold the former African champions, who were 10 points clear at the top, in the first half and withstood a few of the threats from the Kotoko attacking line.

Kotoko who were playing home away from home due to a ban on their home grounds were hoping for a draw, but their party were marred by Inter Allies’ Abdul Fatawu Safiu, who sent Porcupine Warriors keeper Joseph Addo to pick the ball from his net after a brilliant free kick from a 25-yard distance.

The Fabulous Club are still on top of the log with 51 points from 26 games and need a win badly in their next four games to retain the title.
