Asante Kotoko scored twice to open a nine-point gap at the top of the GPL

Kumasi Asante Kotoko scored twice to brush past Accra Great Olympics at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Friday afternoon.

The Porcupine Warriors played at home in a matchday 15 encounter of the ongoing 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season.

After a winless run that has spanned the last five matches, Asante Kotoko bagged two goals through a brace from Frank Thierry Mbella.

The Cameroonian striker netted his first goal from 12 yards in the 10th minute when Asante Kotoko were awarded a penalty kick.

Later in the 34th minute, the forward fired in a shot from close range with the help of the opposing goalkeeper to complete a sensational brace.

Having managed to prevent Great Olympics from scoring, Asante Kotoko have bagged the maximum three points at the end of the contest.

The win sees the Porcupine Warriors open a nine-point gap at the summit of the Ghana Premier League table.
