Kumasi Asante Kotoko snatched the three points from visiting Medeama SC after beating them 1-0 in their week 11 Ghana Premier League, at the Baba Yara Stadium, yesterday.
Kotoko forced the visitors to sit back at their own half until the 31st minute when the tides turned in favour of Medeama whose midfielder, Godknows Dzakpasu, headed home a rebound from the post but it was ruled offside.
Fourteen minutes into the second half, referee Bulu Charles Benle, awarded a penalty to the Reds when George Mfegue fell in the box.
Sherif Mohammed planted the ball firmly with the referee ignoring a vehement protest by Medeama that the player kicked the ball twice.
