Kotoko dent Dwarfs unbeaten record to return to the top

Published on: 04 December 2011

Asante Kotoko ended Dwarfs unblemished record with a 1-0 win at the Baba Yara Stadium to return to the summit of the table.

Midfielder Daniel Nii Adjei applied a blistering header to Baba Abdul Rahman cross from the left with Dwarfs goalkeeper Adade Foli completely beaten.

The victory keep the Porcupine Warriors at the top of the table after their closest rival Berekum Chelsea dropped point against Bechem after their 1-1 draw on Saturday.

Despite the win for the home side, Dwarfs were no pushovers as they put up a stiff challenge and struck the woodwork in the 48th minute through captain Bismark Asiedu.

The attacker turned in centre back Ohene Brenya and fired to the far post with goalkeeper Soulama Abdulai completely beaten.

Kotoko came close twice in the second-half with Ahmed Toure and Nathaniel Asamoah missing scoring opportunities.

Dwarfs coach Professor J K Mintah walked onto the pitch to protest a decision by referee Modey late in the game but was sent into the stands for his action.

The visitors could not extend their unbeaten run and will remain in fifth place on the league table.

    Punctuations ensure one's mechanical accuracy in the use of English Language. Your first sentence should have read....'Asante Kotoko ended Dwarfs'.... (the emphasis on the apostrophe ' on Dwarfs') Moreover, your second line or paragraph should have read....Midfielder Daniel Nii Adjei applied a blistering header to Baba Abdul Rahman's (the emphasis on the apostrophe (') on Rahman's). You could have used...Midfielder Daniel Nii Adjei applied a blistering header to an Baba Abdul Rahman cross... Make the correction and acknowledge me. Don’t delete my post because of the errors i have identified. It is unethical. Hmm , ghanasoccernet na brofo! Tnx

    Benito, you wrong this time. English has two articles: the and a/an. ‘An’ indefinite article and it is used to modify non-specific or non-particular nouns. .......“to an Baba Abdul Rahman cross” is a wrong use of the article ‘an’ . ‘An’ can only precede consonants when the consonant has a vowel sound. For hour...where ‘h’ sounds like /a/ and so on. ‘R’ in Rahman has no vowel sound and cannot take ‘an’. Do your checks well. English is complex but very dynamic so be careful when u want to criticise .Thanks

    Masa oti-asirifi Every industry has its own lexicon. Kwabena Yeboah frequently uses 'the likes of'...and it has gained acceptance and extensive usage in the sports commentary industry. But strictly speaking, it is offensive to the principles of the language. ...“to an Baba Abdul Rahman cross” is a coinage permissible in the context and the industry i used it.

    You are quite right Oti. Perhaps it was a typo on Benito's part; these things do happen you know! However I suppose he opens himself to critique seeing that he presumes to do same. English language is truly interesting.
