West Africa Football Academy shattered Asante Kotoko’s hopes of reclaiming the top spot of the 2020/21 Ghana premier league.
The Academy Boys came from a goal down to draw 1-1 at full time at the Len Clay Stadium on Saturday.
Kotoko defender, Ismail Abdul Ganiu put the Porcupines ahead from the penalty spot with just three minutes played.
WAFA held on to the slim deficit into the break.
Back from recess, Prosper Narteh rang tactical changes which saw the Academy Boys pile pressure on the record Ghana league holders.
Justus Torsutse’s late header pegged the game at 1-1 leaving Kotoko level on points as rivals, Hearts of Oak who defeated Eleven Wonders 1-0 at the Ohene Ameyaw Park on Friday.
Prosper Narteh talks about the tactics that led to their win.
“It was a game of end-to-end action and I think the intensity of the game was good especially from the side of my team.
“Even though we conceded an early goal in the first minute but we kept the tempo very high.
“Because of that we were able wear the Kotoko off in the first leading to the equalizer.
“In the second half we kept to our team structure and organization and we were able to hold Kotoko because we knew they were going to come at us and so we decided to sit back and let them play so that we catch them on the counter.
“And you will realize that we were able to catch them most of the time but the last past to the target player is sometimes incomplete.
“So on a whole I think with respect to my game plan it worked.” Prosper Narteh Ogum said.
WAFA per the result lie 6th on the log with 39 points from 26 games.
Asante Kotoko are tied on 46 points as Hearts of Oak but have less goals than the 2000 CAF Champions League winners.
