Kumasi Asante Kotoko struggled for a 1-1 against a wishy-washy Sekondi Hasaacas in their Glo Premier League match at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi yesterday, compelling the disappointed home fans to vent their spleen on beleaguered coach Paa Kwesi Fabin.
The fans besieged the entrance to the changing rooms after the match and rained insults on the coach for what they perceived to be poor selection and tactical deficiency.
Kotoko were in all sorts of trouble and were lucky to escape defeat after Hasaacas playmaker, Joseph Ato Bissah, who tormented the Kotoko defence with electric pace, wasted a good opportunity inside injury time.
Kotoko shot ahead in the 18th minute when Kabiru Moro profited from a Gideon Baah effort.
Referee Vivian Aggor stamped her authority on the game, flashing the yellow cards on a number of players as the game turned rough.
Hasaacas returned from recess full of fight and levelled up after 49 minutes when Emmanuel Ankobea found room inside the box to connect an Ato Bissah pass.
Ankobea came within inches of scoring again in the 52nd minute but was denied by Soulama Abdulai.
