Ugandan forward Steven Mukwala scored twice for Asante Kotoko as they staged a comeback victory over Hearts of Oak on Sunday, December.

Hearts blew away a first-half lead at the Baba Yara Stadium as the Porcupine Warriors claimed a 3-2 victory on matchday 14 of the Ghana Premier League.

Linda Mtange opened the scoring for the Phobians in Kumasi after 39 minutes to give them the lead but their happiness was short-lived as Isaac Oppong responded with a brilliant finish to draw Kotoko level before the break.

Prosper Narteh Ogum's side returned from recess the better team as they mounted pressure on the home team on the day.

Kotoko found themselves in the lead when Richmond Ayi spilt a shot into the path of Mukwala, who made no mistake from close range to put his side ahead.

The Accra-based side complained about the build-up to the goal with calls for an offside but the referee and his assistant were having none of it.

Mukwala completed his brace with 15 minutes away from full time as he chased down a through ball from Richmond Lamptey forcing the Hearts defence into a mistake which led to the former putting the ball into an empty net to extend Kotoko's lead.

Hearts pulled a goal back in added but it wasn't enough to salvage a point for them as Kotoko walked away with all three points.

With the victory over Hearts of Oak, Kotoko have now won their last four games in the Premier League, scoring eight goals in that period.
