The “Scientific Soccer” lads held onto the lead till the close of the first half as well as the later stages of the second half.

However, Kotoko managed to maintain pressure on the home side for a greater part of the second half and succeeded in the 83rd minute.

It was Abdul Ismael Ganiyu who fetched the equalizer for Kotoko when he headed in a perfect free-kick Imoro Ibrahim to secure one point from the game to keep their lead on the table.
