Karela Rubs Salt Into Kotoko’s Wounds

Karela United has today rubbed a good amount of salt into the wounds of Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

In a match week eleven fixture that was played earlier this afternoon, Karela United hosted Kotoko at home at the Anyinase Cam Park and whipped the away team by three goals to one.

Karela FC took the lead in the 23rd minute through Mohammed Imoro before Sogne Yacuba of Kotoko levelled the scoreline for his team in the 33rd minute.

Karela did not go to sleep at they added another go just before halftime to ensure they go into the break in the lead.

In the second half, Kotoko tried to equalize and get back into the game but could not find the back of the night.

The home team however scored in the 72nd minute through Maxwell Baakoh to give themselves a two-goal lead. From there on Karela held onto their lead and made sure they snatched all three points from Kotoko.

The Porcupine Warriors went into this game looking to back bounce from the one zero loss they suffered at the hands of their sworn enemies last Sunday.

Things are getting worse for the Kumasi based club having just been able to accrue fourteen points out of thirty-three points after eleven games. This poor campaign now sees the Kumasi based team 10th on the lead table.

With this performance, it is evident that Kotoko’s inability to score goals as well their poor away form is having a telling effect on their ongoing Ghana Premier League.

Kotoko has only managed to score nine goals this season and conceded eleven to the opponents they have faced. Poorly, Kotoko has played five away games, won one and lost the remaining four.
