Goals from new signings Samuel Boateng and the new kid on the block, Isaac Oppong handed the Reds maximum points.

Kotoko coach Prosper Narteh Ogum has started the game with a strong line up which included  skipper Ismael Ganiu who returned from international duty with the Black Stars.

However, it was the visitors that first tested the resolve of Kotoko goalkeeper Razak Abalora after right back Isaac Kwain unleashed a thunderous just three minutes into the encounter only to see his effort saved.

Three minutes later, the Porcupines had their first opportunity when Lamptey connected a rebound from Christopher Nettey’s shot but his effort went wide.

Abalora was called to action once again moments later to punch away an Abass Ganiu’s long range shot effort.

Kotoko held on to their shape and finally found an opening to take the lead on the half-hour mark following a defensive blunder by Wonders.

Mudasiru Salifu latched on to a loose ball and the midfielder sent a through ball to Samuel Boateng who calmly sent his effort beyond the reach of the onrushing goalkeeper.

Kotoko were forced to make a change on the brink of half time following an injury sustained by Lamptey.

The former Inter Allies star was replaced Cameroonian striker George Mfegue Rodrigues.

After the break, Boateng was presented with an opportunity to double Kotoko’s advantage but his shot was blocked before Isaac Oppong fluffed another opportunity two minutes later.

But with a quater of an hour to go, Kotoko finally doubled their lead through Oppong.

The young attacking sensation went past his marker with ease and with Wonders goalkeeper anticipating a cross or cut back, Oppong beat him with a fine finish to send the home supporters into wild jubilation.
