Listen to article

In the absence of Songne Yacouba, Guinean international Naby Keita stepped up to convert 88th minute penalty to hand Asante Kotoko a 2-1 victory over bitter rivals Accra Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The lanky forward converted from the spot after the ball struck the hand of a Hearts defender off a ricochet.

Keita's strike settled the tie after Justice Blay and Joseph Esso traded headers either side of half-time.

Blay opened the scoring in the 11th minute and against the run-of-play when he connected with an Augustine Okrah free-kick which went past Hearts goalie Richard Atta.

Esso nodded home a free header in the 64th minute when he was left unmarked in the penalty box.
