Ghana assistant coach Ibrahim Tanko has praised the Asante Kotoko team for their impressive display in their CAF Confederation Cup play-off game with Coton Sport of Cameroon.

The Porcupine Warriors secured an important 3-2 away win over the Cameroonian champions on Sunday and ahead of the second leg in Kumasi.

Emmanuel Gyamfi put the visitors in front in the 8th minute by latching onto Abdul Fatawu Safiu's through pass to go one-on-one with the Coton Sport goalkeeper to slot into the middle of the net.

The goal came after Songne Yacouba and Abdul Fatawu Safiu had taken turns to miss from close range.

Maxwell Baakoh doubled the lead in the 30th minute with a cool finish into the left bottom corner after rounding up two markers.

Dauda Kamilo pulled one back for the hosts from the spot after Morrocan referee Samir Guezzaz's controversial penalty call to Maxwell Baakoh's tackle on an opposing player in the penalty box.

Fatawu Safiu restored the two-goal lead in the 50th minute.
