Giants Asante Kotoko could face the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana FA after their supporters threw projectiles on the field during their shock defeat to Berekum Chelsea, halting the Premier League match for several minutes on Sunday.

Angry supporters of the Porcupine Warriors were furious over decisions of the referee in their match against the visiting which led to some throwing stones and sachet water directed at the match officials.

Some also tried to force a gate to the pitch open before security officials intervened to halt the action which could have spiralled out of control in the match.

Kotoko lost for the first time this season after falling to a surprise 1-0 defeat at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.

The Porcupine Warriors were hoping to continue their winning run but a seventh-minute strike by Kofi Owusu ensured that Chelsea earned the famous win.

It is the same scoreline that Berekum Chelsea recorded when they visited Kotoko's arch-rivals Hearts of Oak on matchday one.

The Blues had been written off ahead of the game. Fair enough, due to Kotoko's explosive start to the season earning two straight wins compared to their's one win and a draw.

But they had other ideas as they executed their strategy to perfection. Chelsea made the best possible start in the afternoon and found the back of the net in the 7th minute.

Kofi Owusu received a brilliant pass inside the box from Jeorge Ranchi and he beat Felix Annan with a shot into the left bottom corner.
