Asante Kotoko held Great Olympics to a drawn game at the Accra Sports Stadium in the Ghana Premier League on Friday.

It was a highly competitive game between the two teams with each side failing to put the ball at the back of the net after regulation time.

Great Olympics dominated possession in the first half with some decent moves from Samuel Ashie-Quaye and captain Gladson Awako.

It was Olympics who dominated much of the play in the first half, but struggled to create any meaningful opening to the Kotoko back line.

Relying deeply on counter attacks, Asante Kotoko used Mubarik Yussif and Mudasiru Salifu to release long searching balls to Emmanuel Gyamfi on the right flank, but Eric Osei Bonsu, and Hamza Zakari were on hand to keep the swift winger at bay.

Samuel Ashie Quaye moved to the midfield after the half hour mark to try his legs on opening up the Kotoko set up, but his efforts proved futile

Both sides failed to threaten each other in the entire half bringing the game to a half time break

Kotoko came close to score in the 66” after Godfred Asiamah cross was to the goal area was headed out by Hamza Zakari.

Sensing danger of not getting a goal, Coach Annor Walker threw more men upfront to try break the back of Asante Kotoko but still failed to connect some of the few chances that came their way,

Asante Kotoko had a swift counter attack a minute later but Godfred Asiamah’s cross was met by Michael vinicius but his shot was parred away by Benjamin Asare in goal for the Dade boys.

The two teams however tried their all to get a goal, but were held by the opponent.
