GPL week 22: New Edubiase 2-1 Asante Kotoko

Edibiase inflict more misery on Porcupines Edibiase inflict more misery on Porcupines

New Edubiase inflicted more pain on Asante Kotoko following a 2-1 win in the Adansi derby on Wednesday at the Berkwai Park.

Tawfik Mohammed and Abdul Nasir Lamin were on target as the relegation embroiled side collected maximum points to give their survival hopes a shot.

And compound the woes of under-fire Kotoko interim manager Michael Osei.

The Bekwai-based drew inspiration from Turkish billionaire buying majority shares in the club hours before the game to give a good account of themselves.

Tawfik capitalized on a defensive blunder to open the scoring for Edubiase in the 17th minute. The host managed to hold on to their precious lead till the 64th minute when Amos leveled.

The skipper kept his composure to score from the spot kick before Nasir Lamin restored Edubiase's lead with a penalty goal.
