Asante Kotoko had to rely on two second-half goals to brush aside Ebusua Dwarfs 2-0 in a match played behind closed doors at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
Kotoko had to play the game without their home fans and Maxwell Konadu’s men had to deploy patience and perspicacity to disintegrate a resilient Dwarfs side.
Dwarfs have now lost all their opening five games of the season leaving pundits to check the books on the last time the club experienced such a mishap in a league season.
Kotoko should have taken an early lead but Burkina Faso striker Songne Yacouba missed a first-half penalty.
Kotoko pressed and duly netted the opener through Matthew Cudjoe before Richard Arthur sealed the win for Kotoko and restore their winning run after they went two games without a point.
