Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko were left reeling at the end of ninety minutes following their one-all stalemate with Berekum Chelsea on Sunday afternoon at the Golden City Park on match day two of the ongoing Ghana Premier League.
The Porcupine Warriors have been tied in a tirade with the Ghana Football Association following the club’s decision to use their Veo Technology to videotape their games.
However they quickly brushed that aside when Kwame Poku notched his second goal of the season before experienced attacker Emmanuel Clottey robbed Kotoko from securing their first three points of the season.
Asante Kotoko, record holders of the Ghanaian top flight, asserted their authority in the game when they bossed possession and created a number of gilt-edged chances in the early embers of the game.
But red-hot striker, Kwame Poku scored the opener in the 18th minute of the match following a goal mouth scramble on the back of a cross from the left side of attack.
Goalkeeper, Felix Annan – who earmarked his birthday on three occasions made match-winning saves to preserve the lead for the Porcupine Warriors as they geared towards their first win of the season.
However, former Asante Kotoko striker Emmanuel Clottey – whose stay at the Kumasi-based club was embroiled in controversy – stepped up to punish his old employers.
At the tail-end of the game, Chelsea won a free kick close to the penalty box and the veteran striker, powered home the equalizer with a belter to put his side on level pegging.
The results mean Asante Kotoko have two points from two matches after sharing the spoils with Techiman XI Wonders in their season opener and followed it up with a similar results (as well as similar scoreline) as they earned a draw at the Golden City park on Sunday afternoon.
