Skipper of the side Amos Frimpong made no mistake from the spot as he fired the ball past the Coton Sport goalkeeper.

Minutes after the recess, Maxwell Baakoh doubled the lead for the Kotoko to make it 2-0.

He got to the end of a loose ball and shot into the far corner. 

Oumarou Sali capitalised on a loosed marking inside the Kotoko penalty box and struck into the bottom corner of the left post to reduce the deficit for the away side. 

The referee brought proceedings to an end at the Baba Yara Stadium with Asante Kotoko qualifying on a 5-3 aggregate.
