The Porcupine Warriors recoreved from the 2-2 draw against Krystal Palace few days ago to return to winning ways thanks to an opening goal from in-form midfielder Adom Frimpong on 16th minute.

Augustine Okrah, who has been tipped by several pundits to help Kotoko achieve success this season, doubled the lead by the 35th minute with a fine finish from the sport against the run of play after a Kotoko player was brought down in the box.

Coach Maxwell Konadu made a lot of changes after the break with a different set of players replacing those who began the game.
