Isaac Donkor scores for AC Cesena in victory over Pescara

Ghanaian defender Isaac Donkor opened his account for AC Cesena in their 4-2 win over Pescara in the Italian Serie B.

Chances were far-fetched for both sides in the first stanza of the game at the Stadio Dino Manuzzi.

However, Cesena were pegged back in the 62nd minute when Libyan enforcer Ahmad Benali put the visitors in front from close range before Gambian forward Lamin Jallow pulled parity for the hosts in the 72nd minute.

Pescara regained their lead four minutes later through Stefano Pettinari but Gaston Brugman's own goal levelled the scores for Cesena in the 81st minute.

And as game was locked in a tie with three minutes to go, Cesena struck a telling blow to the visitors through Gabriele Moncini before Isaac Donkor's 96th minute strike sealed a well-deserved win for the Seahorses.

The victory takes Cesena to 18th on the standings with 21 points after 18 games.
