Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak were denied three points as Ashanti Gold registered a win to move top of the Ghana Premier League table in matchweek 11.

Benjamin Boateng's eighth-minute strike was enough to win all three points for Elmina Sharks who pipped second-from-bottom Wafa 1-0 at the Cape Coast Stadium.
