Naby Laye Keita penalty lifts Asante Kotoko over Inter Allies in Ghana Premier League 



The Porcupine Warriors have added three more points to their haul after a slim win over the Eleven-Is-To-One 

A Naby Laye Keita penalty secured Asante a 1-0 victory over Inter Allies in the Ghana Premier League on Wednesday.

The Guinean’s 68th-minute effort, after Kwame Opoku was fouled in the box, proved the decisive factor in the match week 12 fixture at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The Porcupine Warriors are third on the league table, one point behind Karela United and Great Olympics, who are tied on 21 points at the top of the standings.
