Kotoko coach David Duncan has praised striker Ahmed Toure's instincts since he took charge.

The Ivorian got three points for the Kumasi side through "a striker’s goal" in their First Capital Plus Premier League game against Liberty Professionals on Sunday.

Ahmed Toure was on target for the fifth time this season.

"The goal he scored was an opportunistic one because that is what strikers are meant to do or expected to do," Duncan reflects.

Kotoko managed to hold on to their goal advantage throughout the game as Liberty fought hard to at least earn a point from the game.

Duncan's impact drew a big crowd to the Baba Yara Stadium as he recorded his first home win and continued his unbeaten run since taking over the team last month.

“You might see it as a goal that was taken easily but many strikers will squander opportunities like that so credit to his predatory instinct.

“I must say it was a great game and my players did so well to hold onto the goal.”

Kotoko have now moved to fifth with 19 points on the league standings.
