Kumasi Asante Kotoko have pushed relegation threatened Legon Cities back into the relegation places after a solitary Fabio Gama goal.

Kotoko needed a reaction after their home defeat to Medeama at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium last Sunday.

The Brazilian midfielder once again showed his importance to the Asante Kotoko set up as he scored from a fabulous free kick in the 13th minute.

Gama curled home a free kick from the right side of the pitch into the left bottom corner although the goalie was fooled by the movement of Augustine Okrah as it nestled into the net.

Kotoko should have finished the game in the first half but Emmanuel Gyamfi, Augustine Okrah all wasted presentable opportunities.

The home side pushed for the equalizer but it never came as they lost the match to Kotoko.
