Asante Kotoko’s aim to keep a neck-to-neck chase for the 2020/21 league title with rivals, Hearts of Oak, was pegged back by Aduana Stars in match day 27 at Dormaa on Sunday.
Both sides huffed and puffed for goals with Kotoko needing three points to keep level terms with the Phobians.
The goalless draw at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park leaves the record league holders second on 47 points, two points behind Hearts of Oak who defeated Berekum Chelsea 2-0 in Accra.
Kotoko coach Baretto says he does not feel the pressure from the title chase.
“We don’t feel pressure, we feel pressure for ourselves not from the other teams.” Baretto said.
Kotoko have gone five matches, winning two and drawing three of them.
A 3-1 win over Dreams FC and a subsequent 2-1 victory against Dwarfs earned them nine points on the road.
They have however drawn their last three games, 1-1 to Liberty Professionals and WAFA respectively and goalless at Aduana Stars.
Their next stop is AshantiGold at the Len Clay Stadium for match day 28 on Sunday June 6 at 3:00pm
