Ghanaian giants, Asante Kotoko put up a fine display on Friday afternoon to cruise to a 2-0 win against Great Olympics at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

The team nicknamed the Porcupine Warriors today hosted the team from Accra in a matchday 15 encounter of the ongoing 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season.

On the back of a winless run that has spanned the last five matches, Asante Kotoko have managed to make it six.

The Reds today scored twice through a brace from Cameroonian striker Frank Thierry Mbella.

The clinical 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 Kumasi-based club open a nine-point gap at the summit of the Ghana Premier League table.
