“Its a good win for us. We had to react in the second half and we did because we told the boys their 1-0 was nothing.
“The victory is dedicated to my boss, Dr. Narteh Ogum. The pep talk at half time was marvelous amd it really motivated the lads and they pushed on.
“The substitutions, the dedication in the second half and the fight gave us this win.
“I thank Dr. Ogum him for this opportunity and this win is also dedicated to the fans.”
Kotoko have now won four, drawn four and lost four in their twelve games so far in the league.
Up next in the Berekum Chelsea at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium. But before Chelsea, there’s the FA Cup game against Nations FC.
