Match Report: Kotoko 3-2 Asokwa Deportivo - Kotoko Bench Warmers whip Resilient Asokwa Deportivo

Ghana Premier League side Asante Kotoko managed to beat Division One club Asokwa Deportivo 3-2 in a friendly match on Thursday morning at the Adako Jachie training centre.

The visitors began well with early incursions into their opponents area in search for an early goal.

While in the haunt for an early goal, the Porcupine Warriors laid a siege at Asokwa Deportivo's goal area and had a penalty in the 6th minute following a deliberate handball which was calmly converted by the Burkinabe International Nabi Keita to tame the Asokwa-based side.

It was a lead Kotoko held for just 16 minutes after the visitor's talisman Gabriel Armah equalized before the break.

Coach C.K Akonnor's charges responded immediately after the recess when the former Medeama midfielder Kwame Bonsu restored the lead for his side in the 50th minute.

Twenty minutes later, the homesters increased the tally through former West Africa Football Academy attacker Martin Antwi, who caused much trouble for the Division One club.

Asamoah Boateng of Asokwa Deportivo pulled another back in the die moment of the game to end the match 3-2 in favour of Kotoko as they kept their recent impressive form in place.

The Porcupines are currently preparing ahead of the 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup group stage which commence on February.
