Brazilian playmaker Fabio Gama dos Santos had handled the ball inside the penalty box.

The Porcupines Warriors with a quick response drew level four minutes later after Brazilian striker Vinícius headed home a cross from Emmanuel Gyamfi on the right.

Asante Kotoko got their noses in front for the first time in the game after cental defender Abdul Ganiu Ismail converted a penalty in the 57th minute.

Midfielder Mudasiru Salifu was brought down inside the box by the Dreams defenders leading to the penalty.
