The Giants of the North pipped Porcupine Warriors to pile pressure on Seydou Zerbo
Asante Kotoko failed to pick three points once again as they were pipped 2-1 by Real Tamale United at Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium in Tamale on Saturday night.
After sharing the spoils 1-1 in midweek with Legon Cities at home, Kotoko came into the game with their eyes set on three points.
Fortunately, Cameroonian winger Georges Mfegue got the opening goal of the game for the visitors by the 43rd minute as they continued to pile pressure on their hosts.
However, RTU pulled even after the break against the run of play. Issah Kuka slotted home from close range after a defensive break down.
Abagna added the winning goal on 63rd minute for RTU to set the stadium on fire.
Deep in additional time, RTU were saved by the wood work as Justice Blay’s header rattled the crossbar.
Kotoko sit third on the log with 14 points, two points behind leaders Aduana Stars who have a game in hand.
The rest of the games have been scheduled to take place on Sunday. The Premier League will then go on a break as 2022 Fifa World Cup begins in Qatar.
Ghana have been paired with Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay and will play their first game against Portugal on Thursday November 24.
