Asante Kotoko made a swift recovery from three games without a win to beat Legon Cities FC 2-1 at the Dawu Park in week nine on Sunday.
The Porcupine Warriors’ Cameroonian striker, Franck Etouga showed his quality with a brace to save the day for coach Prosper Narteh Ogum.
Etouga fired the Porcupine Warriors into the lead with 29 minutes of action exhausted at the horrible Theatre of Dreams pitch.
The Royals, who have temporarily adopted the Dawu Park for home games, pulled level on the 33rd minute from the head of Ahmed Rahman after an elementary aerial mistake by goalkeeper Razak Abalora.
The Cameroonian was at his best again – bringing the record Ghana Premier League champions back into lead with 77 minutes played.
A 2-1, Legon Cities, headed by former Kotoko coach, Maxwell Konadu could not pull parity which eventually stood as the winner for Kotoko.
Club captain and central defender, Ismael Abdul Ganiu believes they took their chances.
“It’s wonderful, one of those days.
“You know football is all about taking your chances and today we have taken ours and we are going to look forward to other games and Insha Allah match after match we try to build upon this and then take it to the next level.” Abdul Ganiu said.
The record Ghana Premier League holders, [24 titles] have now raked in 17 points with a week seven outstanding against rivals, Hearts of Oak. Their next future is against West Africa Football Academy in week 10 at the Baba Yara Stadium.
