Uganda’s Striker Steven Mukwala Desse scored twice as Asante Kotoko beat Kotoku Royals 5-1 at the Baba Yara sports Stadium on Sunday.
After Richmond Lamptey put the Porcupine Warriors ahead, Mukwala was brought down in the box by a reckless goalkeeper before he converted from the spot to give his side a 2-0 lead.
And he scored his second goal with a good drive into the roof of the net.
In the 80th minute, the former Vipers, Maroons and URA target man beat his marker before putting it on the plate for Eric Zeze who made it 4-1.
He was also involved in the third goal when he headed back the corner into Solomon Safo Taylor’s way to make it 5-1.
Mukwala has now taken his tally to six goals, one behind leading scorer Mizack Afriyie (Berekum Chelsea).
The victory takes Asante Kotoko to second place, one point adrift of browsers Aduana FC.
Mukwala and Kotoko will be back in action on Thursday when they visit Karela United.
