Bechem United failed to reduce Asante Kotoko’s lead on the league to five points after managing a 1-1 draw against Karela United on Monday.
A spirited Karela side shot themselves into the lead at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park in week 16 when lanky midfielder, Umar Bashir tapped in from close range at 72 minutes. Five minutes after Karela’s opener, experienced forward, Augustine Okrah swiveled inside the goal area to fetch Bechem United’s equalizer. Bechem United head coach, Kasim Mingle is disappointed at failing to close the gap on Kotoko.
“It’s very painful we dropped the points, as the league leaders lost, we should have won and closed the gap, it has happened. “When we started we created the chances, we wasted our chances and football that’s how it is. “When you get the chance and you don’t bury them, the opponents gets his and he scores you.
“It was difficult to come back but it’s good we came back and we had the equalizer.” Kasim Mingle said at a post match press conference. The 1-1 draw keeps the Hunters in second on 46 points - seven points behind leaders, Asante Kotoko after match day 26.
