Kotoko reduce the gap at the top to one point

Asante Kotoko received a major boost in their title defence after cutting the point difference between them and the leaders to one point.

The Porcupine Warriors, who are in third won 1-0 on Wednesday at the Baba Yara Stadium against Tema Youth.

With Medeama and Chelsea holding onto joint-top, Kotoko can somehow sense that jumping to the summit remains a possibility with the season left with seven more matches.

Striker Nafiu Iddrisu scored after 36 minutes for Kotoko and his goal happened to be the the match winner against the Tema side who are struggling to avoid the drop.
