Kotoko could finish matchday 11 four points off the top spot after a disappointing performance saw them held to a 1-1 draw by Great Olympics at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on Sunday.
Kotoko needed a late goal to stay in the top four and avoid defeat in Kumasi, where a victory would have propelled them to the league’s top spot.
Aduana Stars, who are currently in first place, will have a four-point lead over Kotoko if they defeat Bibiani Gold Stars on Monday.
Olympics, who had lost three consecutive games, took the lead just two minutes after the halftime break. Abdul Bashiru’s low and feeble effort surprisingly crept into the net.
Kotoko needed something special to get back on level terms, and they found it late in added time when Andrews Kwadwo Appau scored a great header from a free kick awarded in the 98th minute.
Also on Sunday, Dreams FC shocked Medeama 4-0 in Dawu, with two goals in each half at the Theatre of Dreams. King Faisal and Bechem United drew 1-1. Karela United’s clash with Real Tamale ended goalless, and Nsoatreman beat Samatex 1-0.
