Steven Mukwala spearheaded a sensational Asante Kotoko comeback to deny Hearts of Oak the bragging rights of season in a 3-2 win on Sunday in the Super Clash in Kumasi.
Linda Mtange opened the scoring for the Phobians in Kumasi after 39 minutes to give them the lead but their happiness was short-lived as Isaac Oppong responded with a brilliant finish to draw Kotoko level before the break.
Prosper Narteh Ogum’s side returned from recess the better team as they mounted pressure on the home team on the day.
Kotoko found themselves in the lead when Richmond Ayi spilt a shot into the path of Mukwala, who made no mistake from close range to put his side ahead.
Mukwala completed his brace with 15 minutes away from full time as he chased down a through ball from Richmond Lamptey forcing the Hearts defence into a mistake which led to the former putting the ball into an empty net to extend Kotoko’s lead.
Hearts pulled a goal back in added but it wasn’t enough to salvage a point for them as Kotoko walked away with all three points.
Meanwhile, Kotoko are four points behind the league leaders FC Samartex and two points behind second place Aduana Stars.
