Kotoko pipped AshGold on Monday to move joint top of the Ghana Premier League with Aduana Stars.
Having been postponed due to inclement weather on Sunday after ending 1-1, the replay saw both teams determined to correct tactical errors. But it was the more illustrious of the local rivals who prevailed at the Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi through some situational irony.
Yakubu Mohammed, long a talisman for the Miners in his several seasons there, struck the decisive blow to give the Reds the three points, taking him joint top of the scorers' charts with three.
The Porcupine Warriors are now on ten points with Aduana Stars after four matches in the Ghanaian top flight. Kotoko will hope to continue with their winning streak in order to continue their quest for the league title.
