The Porcupine Warriors have preserved their 12-point lead in the Ghana top-flight after thumping Ashantigold 4-1 at home as the Phobians trail with 34 points as against their 46

Hearts of Oak walloped Amidaus Professionals 3-0 on Sunday in the Ghana Premier League to put pressure on league leaders Asante Kotoko.

The Phobians are now 12 points behind the Porcupine Warriors with a game in hand. Beleaguered coach Mohammed Polo has said the Rainbow Club can still pull a surprise before the First Capital Plus league ends.

The capital club scored all three goals in the second half through Eric Kumi, Salasi Adjei and Robin Gnagne, who sealed victory from the spot to gift the Never Say Die side 34 points.

Asante Kotoko extended their lead on the log by thrashing Ashantigold 4-1 at the Baba Yara Stadium. Seidu Bancey bagged a double with Richard Mpong and Michael Akuffu adding the other two while Emmanuel Osei got the consolation for the Miners, who have gone six games without a win.

Kotoko remain at the top with 46 points with Ashantigold dropping to the fifth position with 28 points.

At the Essipon Stadium, Hasaacas tamed Heart of Lions in a game that ended 1-0 courtesy Emmanuel Ankobeah.

New Edubiase had the final smile against King Faisal after Stephen Manu had scored from the spot in injury time.
