Asante Kotoko beat ten-man Zesco United 2-1 at home on Wednesday to breathe life back into their CAF Confederation Cup Group C campaign.
The Porcupine Warriors started the match very aggressive with some quick-passing play but petered out late on.
They took the lead on nine minutes through midfielder Kwame Bonsu whose long-range effort took a ricochet off teammate Abdul Fatawu Safiu to beat the Zesco United No.1 Jacob Banda.
Just before the half hour mark, winger Emmanuel Gyamfi doubled Kotoko’s lead after connecting home Yacouba’s prosaic low pass with the outside of his boot from the left.
Ghanaian striker Rahim Osmanu climbed off the bench to pull one back for the Zambian champions in the 72nd minute.
