Asante Kotoko’s aim to recover from the 3-2 defeat to city rivals, King Faisal in week six was still left in a semi sleepy state, when Real Tamale United held them at the Baba Yara Stadium on Wednesday.
The Porcupine Warriors huffed and puffed for goals but to no avail, leaving the first half barren.
Back from the recess, Prosper Narteh Ogum’s men refueled which resulted in an opener from Cameroonian import, Mbella Frank Thierry.
The celebrations will however not last as the premier league returnees got their arsenals together to pull level late in the game through David Abagna Sandan.
Kotoko head coach, Prosper Narteh Ogum was seen issuing instructions on the touch line but has denied being frustrated when the game became tough.
“Like I said earlier, our team is a well composed team, they are young guys who are hungry for success.
“I told them that Kotoko is just ordinary, they are colleagues so when they cut them blood will come out so they should go and meet them as such so that is the result.
The draw means that Kotoko have gone three games without a win and have only picked two points in the process.
They currently occupy third spot with 14 points from seven games. They have an outstanding against arch rivals, Accra Hearts of Oak.
