Asante Kotoko bounced back from defeat to Medeama last week to beat Legon Cities at the Accra Sports stadium.

The Porcupine Warriors return to the top of the table as a result having played a game more than their rivals.

Kotoko started the game brilliantly and piled pressure on the Royals.

Their pressure paid off as a free-kick from Fabio Gama was guided into the net by Augustine Okrah.

Barreto’s men contained Legon Cities throughout the rest of the game to pick up their fifth away win of the season.

Legon Cities on the hand now sit in the relegation zone after the defeat.

The Accra-based club have 23 points after 22 games and pressure is piling on Bashir Hayford.

Legon Cities dropped into the bottom three after a dramatic win by Eleven Wonders on Saturday afternoon.

The Techiman-based club conceded first after a goal by by Aduana Stars’ midfielder Bright Adjei.

Eleven Wonders responded well and got their equalizer through Mohammed Tetteh who converted a penalty kick.

Ignatius Fosu-Osei’s men left it late as talisman Samuel Boakye grabbed the winner with less than five minutes to play.

The result catapulted Eleven Wonders out of the relegation zone.
