Goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim was the star of the show, saving a penalty late in the game to deny Chelsea an upset over the Porcupine Warriors on a difficult afternoon.

After back to back wins over Aduana Stars and Ashanti Gold in their two previous league games, the Reds were hoping to make it three in a row when they visited the Berekum Park.

Head coach Prosper Narteh Ogum made just one change to his team that beat Ashgold last weekend with midfielder Richmond Lamptey returning from suspension to take a spot in midfield.

Meanwhile, Chelsea named an unchanged side as the coach maintained the players that played against Medeama last weekend.

The first half was full of tension without chances created but Paul Attah Agyei was given an opportunity in the 18th minute only for him to guide his effort wide.

Cameroonian duo Frank Mbella Etouga  and Georges Mfegue combined to create an opening in Chelsea’s defence in the 35th minute but the danger was cleared by Stephen Anokye Badu.

After the break, Kotoko began to improve in the final third but failed to make count all the half chances that came their way.

But in the 80th minute, substitute Kofi Owusu was awarded a controversial penalty by referee Jones Akubiem after the striker’s shot was adjudged to have hit the hand of Kotoko defender Yussif Mubarik.

However, Stephen Anokye Badu’s kick from the resulting penalty was perfectly saved by goalkeeper Danlad Ibrahim.

Kotoko held on to pick one priceless point, maintaining their position on the summit of the league log with 27 points.

The Porcupine Warriors have one outstanding game against fierce rivals Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium which has been scheduled to take place on February 20.
