The Royals threw their lead away as Kotoko came from behind to secure victory at the WAFA Park in Sogakope on Saturday.

Legon Cities took the lead with Nasiru Moro's splendid free-kick finding the net in the 27th minute.

But the Porcupine Warriors stage a comeback to secure a 3-1 away win over their opponent. The equalizer came in the 67th minute courtesy of an own goal from Mohammed Suleman.

Subsequently, Stephen Mukwala extended the lead for the away side in the 75th minute, and Isaac Oppong sealed the victory late in injury time.

After the game, Ocloo dedicated his outfit win to coach Prosper Narteh and the fans for the unwavering support.

“It was a difficult goal to take but I told my players to get going and they did that to ensure we win. I dedicate this win to our boss, Dr Prosper Narteh Ogum, he’s being a marvelous boss so far. I thank him for this opportunity and will thank also for the pep talk during recess, it has been a wonderful pep talk because it really inspired the players” he told StarTimes.

“I will also dedicate win to our supporters for being there for us during hard time, they are marvelous supporters and we really appreciate them”

Asante Kotoko have moved to the 8th position on the league table with 16 points after this win.
