Faisal nearly doubled their lead three minutes into the break but Mawuli Wayo’s effort was shielded by Mubarik Yusif.

Before the start of the second, Kotoko coach Prosper Narteh Ogum brought on Joseph Amoako for George Mfegue and Sheriff Mohammed was substituted by Christopher Nettey.


Kotoko kept on making incursions and in one of those moves Abdul Latif came  in with a great tackle to stop Franck Etouga from pulling the trigger.
