Asante Kotoko were rendered ineffective at home as New Edubiase defeated them 2-1 to add more woes to their loss to Kpando Heart of Lions last weekend.
All the three goals scored in the game came in the first half: Fuseini Nuhu and Felix Aboagye for the away side, with Ahmed Adams scoring for Kotoko.
New Edubiase enjoyed greater part of the possession in the early exchanges of the game and crowned with a goal in the 20 minute through Fuseini Nuhu, before Ahmed Adams restored parity in the game in the 26 minute. Felix Aboagye restored the lead for New Edubiase in the 28 minute.
Less than five minutes after the recess the centre refree sent Tahiru Malik off for rough play to reduce the numerical strength of the Edubiase lads.
However they stood to the grounds and fought gallantly, despite David Duncan’s decision to bring Ahmed Toure and Stephen Oduro on to change the tide of the game in their favour.
New Edubiase, who knew the essence of the three points to them, defended well to deny the Porcupine Warriors a goal.
This win has helped New Edubiase to increase from 19 points to 22 points and might lift themselves from the relegation zone after match day 17.
The Porcupine Warriors have suffered two successive defeats in the ongoing First Capital Plus Premeir League for the very first time and are now tied on points with New Edubiase.
