The Porcupine Warriors were defeated 3-2 by Ashantigold on Sunday during the second leg of the “Golden Clash” in Obuasi.
A double from striker Shafiu Mumuni and a strike from offensive midfielder Richard Djodi were enough for the Miners who could not keep a clean sheet at the fortress Len Clay as Obed Owusu and a Songne Yacouba got onto the scoresheet.
This game, under the leadership of interim coach Akakpo Patron, is the first of the club since the resignation of head coach Paa Kwesi Fabin on September 13.
The team seemed to have got its magic back under Fabin after the first round of the league season but suddenly left his role in Kumasi to the shock of many.
Ashgold were defeated 3-2 by Fabin’s Kotoko in the first keg but John Christensen has secured a revenge this time against Paa Kwesi Fabin’s assistant Akakpo Patron.
