Ghana Premier League: Richard Arhin leads crusade as Aduana defeat Kotoko in Dormaa
Aduana Stars defeated Kotoko

Aduana Stars rallied to maintain the status quo as they crucified champions Asante Kotoko 1-0 at the Agyeman-Badu Park in Dormaa Ahenkro in the Ghana Premier League on Sunday. 

Striker Richard Arhin claimed the maximum points from the tie for the Fire Club with a clinical finish in the 10th minute and Kotoko could not recover from the early blow.

Kotoko's assembly in the line-up was a straight signal of their intentions to end Aduana's home dominance over the Porcupine Warriors with Burkina Faso international Ahmed Toure leading the attacking line and supported by Obed Owusu.

Experienced midfielder Jordan Opoku was accompanied by Michael Akuffo and Richard Mpong.

Aduana Stars coach Kwabena Ameyaw countered Didi Dramani's intent by naming 2014 FIFA World Cup Ghana goalkeeper Stephen Adams in goal and playing Godfred Saka.

Former Hearts of Oak striker James Abban was also in the line-up.

Kotoko tried to stamp their authority in the game but Aduana stood their grounds and forced Kotoko back though Ahmed Toure remained a big threat for their defence until the end.

Arhin's goal was a goal with his signature, oozing free in the Kotoko backline and getting the better off Abeiku Ainooson before finishing calmly.

    Am a full blood Kotoko fan as well but I disagree with your crusade to see the back of Didi Dramani. If you don't want the man there please say so. You can't just try putting your Kotoko membership on the line without having full support for the team. Whether lose or win, I am still FABU BURU THE BEST.

    Wrong analysis, Jimmy. Don't expect FABU TO MASSACRE every team. Leicester beat Man U but Leicester is wallowing at the bottom of the table. STOP THE CRUSADE to oust DRAMANI.

    If with all the domestic superstars coupled with a lot of pre-season friendlies both domestic and international yet Kotoko failed to beat Aduana Stars on the opening day, then Coach Didi Dramani is technically bankrupt. Kotoko would break the hearts of Ghanaians this year again. East End Lions of Sierra Leone would eliminate Kotoko because these players form the core of the Leone Stars which played in the AFCON qualifiers against Cote D'Ivoire, Cameroun and DR Congo. Nobody should insult me or call me a Phobian, I am a die-hard Kotoko fan. I even have the team's membership card. The truth must be told, Didi Dramani should be fired before Kotoko embarks on the CAF Champions league adventure.

    u people are funny papa, u call these players superstars? they are only a bunch of overhyped lots because more than half of sports journalists in the country are kotoko sympathizers.How do u expect to win against a side that is the most consistent in the league in terms of player exodus? Stop hyping these average players as super stars and they will learn to deliver when the stakes are high.
