“We have lodged a formal complaint with the Ghana Football Association against the referees who officiated our #GPL2122 matchday-6 game against King Faisal in Kumasi last Sunday,” a post on the club’s twitter read.

Kotoko suffered their first defeat of the campaign as they were beaten 3-2 by their city rivals in the Kumasi derby at the Baba Yara Stadium.

The Porcupine Warriors believe match officials led by Centre referee  Julian Nunoo contributed to the loss that has seen King Faisal overtake  them as league leaders.

In the first half, Kotoko were awarded a penalty by the referee who later reversed the decision after consulting fourth official Daniel Laryea.

It was King Faisal’s first league win against Kotoko in seven years and they achieved it with a clinical performance.

Zubairu Ibrahim gave them a two-goal lead before the 20th minute mark. The attacker scored inside three minutes and doubled the advantage 14 minutes later.

Kotoko returned from the break determined to stage a comeback. They managed to halve the deficit two minutes into the half courtesy of George Mfegue.

The Porcupine Warriors committed more men forward in search of the equaliser and they got punished as Ibrahim completed his hat-trick in the 68th minute.

Mfegue scored again to give Kotoko hope and set up a nerve-wracking ending to the game.
