Another setback — Kotoko have to brace themselves for more pressure from their fans

WAFA has deepened the woes of Kumasi Asante Kotoko after pipping the Porcupine Warriors 1-0 in the mid-week fixture played at Sogakope yesterday.

The home-team has maintained their dominance at home as they put up some splendid performance to grab the three points to solidify their third position on the league table.

It took some level of brilliance from WAFA’s Ashimeru Majid to get the only goal of the match in the 60th minute after the first half ended in stalemate.

Majid after realizing Kotoko’s goalie, Ofori Antwi had left his line, fired a long range shot which went straight into the net and drew massive cheers from the crowd.

The Porcupine Warriors went into the game hoping to walk away with at least a point but the home team had separate ideas as they maintained their resilience at defense to deny Kotoko a goal.

The relegation scare has hit Kotoko harder now as they lie 12th on the league table just a point behind rivals Accra Hearts of Oak on the 11th position.
