Asante Kotoko head coach Paa Kwesi Fabin has praised his 'valuable' assistant Akapko Patron following the historic point earned by the club at WAFA.
Yakubu Mohammed cancelled out Aminu Mohammed's lead in the first half to give Kotoko their first goal and point against WAFA at Sogakope since the academy boys secured promotion into the elite division in 2003.

Speaking on how he led that feat, Fabin attributed it to a well thought out plan which, he said, was heavily influenced by his assistant who spent the last three years working in an exact capacity at WAFA.Akakpo Patron issuing instructions from the touchline
"We came here with a strategy and I think it worked too for us", he acknowledged. "Definitely Akakpo Patron played a very big role since he was here for some time and knew most of the things they do here. He was valuable to us earning this point".
"I have not lost here before", he said of his experience coming into the 2017/18 match day-one fixture. "I have earned a draw here with Inter Allies and Berekum Arsenal. I was even confident, when coming, that we could take the three points. Our attack was a bit slow otherwise we could have won the game in the second half".
