Kotoko In Hard Win
LEAGUE LEADERS Kumasi Asante Kotoko yesterday laboured to a 1-0 win over 10-man New Edubiase at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
Being urged on by home fans, Kotoko probed for a goal from the start which finally came during injury time.
The only goal of the game came from an unlikely source, as defender Kwabena Adusei blasted home from the spot.
A defender of the visitors, in a desperate attempt to clear the danger, handled the ball in the penalty box.
The referee did not waste time in whistling for a penalty, which was greeted with deafening noise from the anxious Kotoko fans.
Earlier, the two teams probed each other’s territory for a goal, but near misses denied either side the opener.
After the break, Nuhu Fuseini of New Edubiase received the red card after a second bookable offence.
Kotoko’s one-man advantage helped them as they pushed the visitors to the rope until the goal came in the dying embers of the game.
