Late goal saves Kotoko from RTU scare

Asante Kotoko piped Real Tamale United by a goal to nil on Wednesday to book their ticket to the quarter finals of the MTN FA Cup at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi.

The first half of the game failed to produce any scorer as the two sides had equal share of the possession.

RTU scared Asante Kotoko in the 76 minute when Joseph Mensah connected a rebound, but referee Joseph Lamptey disallowed the goal counting it as offside.

Asante Kotoko replied RTU by scoring the goal that qualified them to the quarter finals of the competition through Obed Owusu in the 86th minute.

The Porcupine Warriors will take on their regional rivals Ashgold n the quarter finals of the MTN FA Cup, after they also edged Inter Allies by 2-1 at Obuasi on Wednesday.
