Bibiani Gold Stars started the game on the front foot with some beautiful build up and scintillating display from the back but it was Kotoko who shot into the lead just before the half time whistle.

After the interval, the Por­cupine Warriors played to a well-rehearsed pattern to keep the Miners front men at bay.

Set piece experts, Appiah Mc­Carthy and Abednego Tetteh, were given their chance in the second half but their intro­duction did not change much as Kotoko held on to win the game.
