Heart of Lions secure a narrow win over Kotoko in Kpando

The second half of the Ghana Premier League 2023-2024 season kicked off to a shocking start with Heart of Lions beating Kumasi Asante Kotoko Sporting Club 1-0.

Lions picked up only their third win of the season after getting past Kotoko with the only goal of the game coming via Kwadwo Asamoah in the 52nd minute.

Kotoko’s Nicholas Mensah was sent off in the second half after picking up a second yellow card that reduced Kotoko to 10 men.

Lions’ win pushed the Kpando lads from the bottom spot in the standings to 15th ahead of Sunday’s fixtures that involve other relegation-threatened teams.

Kpando have accrued 18 points while Kotoko’s loss keeps The Porcupine Warriors in third place with 29 points on the back of registering eight wins, five losses, and five draws.

21-year-old Lions’ goalkeeper Thomas Kwabena Osae was named as Man of the Match after pulling off a string of fine saves to prevent Kotoko from scoring.
