At the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi, Asante Kotoko continued their revival with a convincing 3-0 win over struggling Ebusua Dwarfs.
The Porcupine Warriors before the break took a two goal lead courtesy Dauda Mohammed and Frank Sarfo Gyamfi.
Dwarfs had the opportunity to reduce the deficit and get back into the game in the second half when they were awarded a penalty, but their new signing Gilbert Fiamneyo spot kick was saved by Ernest Sowah.
Dauda Mohammed later in the game registered his brace and Asante Kotoko third goal as Dwarfs were sent packing from Kumasi.
Elsewhere in Dormaa, Yahaya Mohammed ‘terminated’ Dreams FC out the third position with brace as Aduana trumped into a 4-0 win.
Coach-less Inter Allies secured a priceless point in Sogokpe, while Techiman City rose to fourth place after beating league leaders, Wa All Stars at the Ohene Ameyaw Park.
In Obuasi, defending champions were held to a zero-all stalemate by Bechem United to pile more pressure on Bashir Hayford who is beginning to be unpopular among the Miners faithfuls.
