Berekum Chelsea 1:1 Asante Kotoko: Clottey’s Late Strike Breaks Porcupines Heart

Asante Kotoko recorded their second drawn game in the 2020/21 Ghana premier league at the Golden City Park against Berekum Chelsea on matchweek 2 game on Sunday afternoon.

The first half had some bit of action, with Felix Annan being called into action several times.

Chelsea were off to a bad start at home when Kwame Opoku scored after eighteen minutes of action to give Kotoko the lead and it was downhill from there for the hosts.

The Porcupines goalkeeper Felix Annan was put in a few challenging positions but managed to make some decent saves throughout the game.

The visitors still managed to control the game with Kwame Opoku and Emmanuel Gyamfi trying their respective luck at goal but both sides went into halftime with the Reds leading through Kwame Opoku’s goal.

Chelsea were the better side in the second period and should have equalised but Felix Annan again stood up to deny the Bibires on many occasions with some brilliant saves.

Emmanuel Gyamfi had a solid chance to make it two goals for Kotoko after 60 minutes but it wasn’t enough and goalkeeper Sammy Adjei managed to clear the danger.

There were more good chances in the game for the Porcupines, but the same can’t be said for the home side, who seemed to defend more and try to kill the game with setpieces which paid off in the 95th minute when Emmanuel Clottey climbed off the bench to score a specular free-kick to deny Maxwell Konadu and his men their first victory over Chelsea at the Golden City Park after Felix Annan had been replaced by Kwame Baah following an injury he sustained in the 90th minute.

The draw now leaves the Porcupines on the 8th position with 2 points from two games having drawn the first game against Eleven Wonders in Accra.
