Leaders Asante Kotoko extended their lead at the top of the ongoing 2021/22 Ghana Premier League, (GPL) with a hard-fought 1-0 home win over Medeama SC this afternoon.
Cameroonian import George Mfegue scored the lone goal for the Porcupines midway through the second half at the Baba Yara Stadium, Kumasi to win all three points for the home side.
Kotoko extended their lead at the top of the stairs to six points from second placed Aduana FC who play Dreams FC tomorrow afternoon at Dawu.
The Porcupines have 30 points from 13 matches and have a game in hand against their bitter rivals Hearts of Oak to be played next month.
This afternoon's game with Medeama SC was one Kotoko dominated and should have won by a higher margin.
They could even afford to miss a penalty late in the game in claiming this victory over a Medeama SC side that has been impressive in their output lately.
