Ghana Premier League: Asante Kotoko suffer 3rd straight loss

Aduana FC defeated Asante Kotoko 2-1 at the Nana Agyeman Badu I Park last Sunday to move within two points of league leaders FC Smartex on the Ghana Premier League log. 


The home side shot into the lead in the ninth minute through Kelvin Obeng after early pressure in search of the opening goal, but Kotoko's Ugandan forward, Steven Mukwala, established his credentials as one of the league's leading marksmen as he scored the equaliser just before the half time whistle. 

The match was heading for a draw until Richard Mahama headed home the winning header from close range to give the host a 2-1 win. 

 It was the third straight defeat by Coach Prosper Narteh Ogum's side who dropped to the seventh spot on the log after earlier losses against Accra Lions and Karela United.
