It was all joy for the Porcupine faithful at the Accra Sports Stadium as they secured a 3-1 victory against Bechem United on Friday night.
The win saw Asante Kotoko move joint-top with Ashantigold with 21 points.
Hafiz Wotah Konkoni struck home for the visitors halfway through the first half before Martin Antwi drew level for Kotoko.
Before then, there was a moment of controversy as referee Kenny Paddi reversed his decision after awarding Kotoko a penalty for a handball inside Bechem United penalty.
Following consultation with his assistant, referee Kenny Paddi overturned his decision to the surprise of fans at the stadium.
Augustine Okrah handed Kotoko the lead on the stroke of halftime to end the half 2-1 in favour of the home side.
Kotoko doubled their lead ten minutes into the second half as Imoro Ibrahim hit the beautiful freekick into the top right corner.
Coach Maxwell Konadu’s men held on to end the game 3-1; a victory that would come as a relief to the fans and playing body after having endured a torrid week for all the wrong reasons.
The win is Kotoko’s sixth of the campaign, having lost and drawn three apiece after twelve league games.
