Asante Kotoko recorded a 1-0 win over Medeama SC at the Akoon Park in Tarkwa on Saturday, handing the latter their fourth consecutive defeat following a 1-0 loss to Accra Great Olympics last time out.

Nicholas Mensah scored the only goal of the game in the second half to give the Porcupine Warriors their first away win of the season propelling them to the summit of the league.

Asante Kotoko however ended the game with 10-men after Eric Zeze was sent off in the 87th minute after receiving a second yellow card.

The Porcupine Warriors now top the league table with 13 points, heading into Sunday’s fixtures.
