Kotoko fall to Lions

13 years ago

Asante Kotoko have made it to the Top Four finals despite losing to Heart of Lions on Saturday in the final group game.

The Porcupine Warriors who were played off the pitch for most of the game failed to match the Kpando-based side as Ibrahim Suleman struck a late goal to win the match at the Ohene Djan Stadium.

Indecision on the part of two Kotoko defenders allowed Suleman to poke in the winner in a game that produced few chances.

Kotoko pushed more men forward in search for an equaliser but they were met by strong defensive backline leaving the Porcupine Warriors to rue the few opportunities that had come their way.

Asante Kotoko will now play Liberty Professionals in the finals at the Baba Yara Stadium, Kumasi next month.
