Asante Kotoko Sit Top Of GPL Table With Unbeaten Record

Asante Kotoko have extended their unbeaten run following a 2 - 0 win over Eleven Wonders tonight. They now sit at the scalp of the table with 12 points.

Samuel Boateng and Isaac Oppong got the two goals for the league leaders.

Eleven Wonders get the first foul of the night and it's not too far off the box. Isaac Kwain took it and goalkeeper Razak Abalora was there to grab it.

Fabio Gama gets the fans shouting 'goal' and clapping their hands at the same time as he forces a decent save from the Wonders keeper with a beautiful long-range shot towards the top right corner. 

Isaac Oppong picks the ball halfway into the Wonders area and goes around his marker with a dashing run into the box. The keeper anticipates a cutback pass but the player is cleverer and bends it into the far post. That results in a goal.

The game ended 2 - 0 for Kotoko.
