2022/23 GPL: Asante Kotoko beat 10-man Samartex, Hearts of Oak record yet another win – Match week five review

Asante Kotoko came from behind to beat 10-man Samartex FC 2-1 in their match week of the Ghana Premier League fixture at the Baba Yara Sports stadium on Sunday.

The Porcupine Warriors came into the match fresh into the match fresh from their 2-0 loss to Bechem United in midweek and needed the points badly to appease to appease their teaming fans.

But it was the visitors who took the lead at the Baba Yara Sports stadium four minutes after halftime thanks to Prince Antwi.

The lead lasted until the 78th minute when Nicholas Mensah scored his second goal of the season to equalise for the Porcupine Warriors.

The visitors were dealt a blow in the 86th minute after Seidu Abubakar was sent off for a second yellow card.

Augustine Agyapong smashed home the resulted free kick to give the Reds the points at home.

The win takes Asante Kotoko to the third spot with 10 points, three points adrift of leaders Aduana Stars who are at the top with 13 points.

Elsewhere, Real Tamale United handed Berekum Chelsea their first defeat of the season after beating them 2-1 at the Golden City Park at Berekum.

The Northern giants had been without a win in their opening four games -after two defeats and two draws thus far. David Abagna Sandan drew the first blood in the 11th minute for RTU.

While looking for the equalizer, Roland Frimpong added the second goal to deepen the woes of Chelsea.

Former champions Aduana Stars beat Legon Cities 1-0 at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park to reclaim the top spot. Isaac Mintah scored the only goal of the match in the 38th minute to give the Ogya lads another home win.
