Berekum Chelsea v Kotoko
The Blues did not allow their visitors to complete a double over them following the midweek setback in Kumasi

Berekum Chelsea held visiting Asante Kotoko to a goalless draw at the Golden City Park on Sunday, a few days after suffering a 2-0 defeat in the reverse fixture played in Kumasi.

The Porcupine Warriors were hoping to complete a double over the hosts in matchday eight to strengthen their lead in Zone A, but the Blues held their own to impose a goalless stalemate.

Kotoko remain leaders of Zone A with 14 points while Chelsea occupy the bottom spot with four points.

However, the Berekum Chelsea and Kotoko meeting made headlines on Sunday evening in Ghana due to an incident outside the stadium before kick-off.

Gunshots were heard close to the facility, which police said were fired by Kotoko’s policy analyst Amo Sarpong in response to an attack by the home fans on Perugia, Kotoko’s operations officer.

Both officials sustained injuries and are currently receiving treatment in the hospital.

Berekum Chelsea will play next Ashanti Gold while Kotoko will wait until matchday 10 for their game against Bechem United.
