Experienced Hans Kwofie, make it two to the Royals with a typical striker’s finish to make it 2-0 to Legon Cities FC who were the better side in the match.

Substitute, Salifu Mudasiru reduced the deficit to one just before half time with an excellent instinctive strike.

Kotoko fought hard but could not find their way back into the game with Legon Cities missing so many good changes to score more.
