Ghana Premier League: Asante Kotoko 2-0 Hearts of Oak – Phobians close to relegation after defeat to Porcupines


Asante Kotoko secured a league double over their arch-rivals Hearts of Oak with a 2-0 victory at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday in a Week 31 Ghana Premier League clash.


In their first encounter of the season, held in Kumasi, Asante Kotoko triumphed with a 3-2 win.
