Great Olympics put up a very good performance on Thursday afternoon to see off Asante Kotoko with a 2-0 win in the Ghana Premier League.

The Oly Dade Boys hosted the Porcupine Warriors at the WAFA Park in Sogakope today after receiving approval to move all remaining home matches away from the Accra Sports Stadium.

For a team that has battled relegation in recent weeks, Great Olympics set up strong today in a bid to deal with defending league champions Asante Kotoko.

In the Week 28 match of the ongoing Ghana Premier League season, the game plan of the home team worked and produced a goal after just eight minutes into the first half.

A strike from Michael Osei handed Great Olympics the advantage to flex some muscle.

Later in the 39th minute, Emmanuel Akesseh scored to double the lead for the home team after finishing a smooth counter-attacking play.

Although Asante Kotoko would put up a fight in the second half, the team could not stage a comeback and finished the game with 10 men following an injury-time sending-off of midfielder Richmond Lamptey.
