The Porcupine Warriors picked a crucial away win against the Mysterious Club, prompting their manager to turn focus on the title

Asante Kotoko coach Steve Polack believes his side deserved the 1-0 victory over Ebusua Dwarfs in the Ghana Premier League in Cape Coast on Wednesday.

A Baba Mahama volleyball, after latching onto a pass from Jackson Owusu, silenced the home team, who won 4-0 in a similar fixture last season.

The win has pushed Kotoko to fourth place with 32 points, eight points behind leaders Wafa, with their manager now optimistic they can annex the trophy with ten matches remaining.

“The passion and readiness to win this game from my players was great. It was a good game on the day and we had a field day on a weak area we found in their team,” Polack told the media.

“I heard them saying they will repeat what they did to us last year but we also came in not to lose the game and deserved the victory. Looking at the table with ten more matches to go, I believe we shall prove a point in the title chase before the season ends.

“We are not giving up because the dream is still alive and we can make something out for the supporters,” he added.

Kotoko will host Medeama before traveling to Tema to lock horns with Inter Allies but they will have to face fierce rivals Hearts of Oak in the 2017 edition of the President Cup at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday.
