Asante Kotoko coach Maxwell Konadu says superior head-to-head results over tough oppositions is responsible for their Premier League feat.

The Porcupine Warriors sealed their 22nd Premier League title after drawing goalles with Berekum Arsenals last Sunday to open up a 15-point gap at the top with four matches to spare.

And the ex Ghana striker who was brought in at the beginning of the campaign points out positive results chalked in the key battles during the season.

"I remember we found games against Chelsea, Medeama and Mighty Jets at home and also our game in Dormaa against Aduana as very very difficult," he told Kumasi-based Angel FM.

"Some of the boys even believe our away draw with Chelsea secured us the league title. These are very difficult games we managed to get something out.

"So if you analyze our season critically, you will see that Kotoko is better in the head-to-head computation against the other challengers of the league and I believe it helped us a lot in the long run."

Kotoko travels to Kpando to take on Hearts of Lions in a midweek clash on Wednesday.
