“Kotoko could’ve scored more goals against Ashanti Gold,” says unsatisfied Prosper Ogum


The Porcupine Warriors boss feels his charges could’ve walloped their rivals in the derby game on Sunday

Asante Kotoko coach Prosper Ogum Narteh has insisted that they could’ve scored more goals despite defeating Ashanti Gold 3-1 in the Ashanti derby at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday.

After a slow start to the game, a second half hat-trick by Cameroonian striker Etuoga Mbella Frank Thierry broke down a resilient defence of Ashanti Gold.

Elijah Addai scored a late consolation goal for Ashanti Gold who have now gone three games without a win.

However, Ogum feels his charges fluffed several other chances which could’ve helped them to achieve a historic scoreline.

“It was good. I think that for the first time at the Baba Yara Stadium, we were able to find our rhythm,” Ogum said after the game.

“We were able to circulate the ball very well, confidently and if you look at the chances that we created we could have scored more. We could’ve won the game by a bigger margin than this.

“I’m happy that for the first time they were very calm on the ball, they were very calm without the ball and were able to exploit the spaces that we created.

Ashanti Gold is a big team which we all know and going up by 3 goals to 1 is fantastic. I’m happy for the boys,” he added.

Kotoko lead the Ghana Premier League log with 26 points, three points above Aduana Stars and they will travel to Golden City Park in Berekum next weekend to face Berekum Chelsea.
