Asante Kotoko striker Kofi Nti-Boakye insists the title is not yet won despite his side going twelve points clear at the summit of the Ghanaian top flight.
The Porcupine Warriors left it late to end a seven-year winless streak with a deserved 2-1 win over Hearts of Oak in the big Ghanaian derby at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.
A last gasp wonder strike by diminutive Michael Akuffo edged the Reds back into the lead with seconds left after Mahatma Otoo had equalized moments before.
The win hands Kotoko a massive advantage in their quest to land their first Premier League title in four years with six games to run but Nti-Boakye who fetched Kotoko’s first goal in savouring the win says it is all not over.
“Well, since the league has not yet ended I wouldn’t say we are champions,” he said after the game.
“It feels very great to score against Hearts but we have not won the league yet so I urge the supporters to continue supporting us like the way they did today until the end.”
