MTN FA Cup: Asante Kotoko qualify for quarter-finals

Kumasi Asante Kotoko booked their ticket to the quarter-finals of the MTN FA Cup yesterday after beating bogey side, Asokwa Deportivo, 2-1 at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium.

Unlike previous encounters, Kotoko took a commanding 2-0 lead in yesterday’s derby.

Gama’s opener


Playing without suspended Coach Mariano Barreto and skipper Emmanuel Gyamfi, the Porcupine Warriors still managed to break the deadlock after 11 minutes through a spot kick converted by Brazilian playmaker, Fabio Gama.

This was after striker Francis Andy Kumi was fouled in the box.

In-form Evans Adomako increased the tally for Kotoko before recess.

However, the stubborn Division One side got a consolation goal in the second half.
