Amos Frimpong’s penalty was enough to send Kotoko to the MTN FA Cup semi final after victory over Nea Salamina at the Baba Yara Stadium.
The Porcupine Warriors recorded a 2-1 win over the division one league side in game played on Wednesday.
Kotoko grabbed the opener in the 12th minute through Saddick Adams after a lovely run from Emmanuel Gyamfi on the right flanks.
The local tier side warmed themselves into the game after conceding with a lot of chances which went wasted.
Striker Obeng Kwadwo finally found the equalizer for his side with a superb strike to end the first half on a 1-1 draw.
Back from the break, Nea Salamina continued to trouble the Asante Kokoto defense but failed to turn it into goals after so many chances.
The division one side were punished for their missed chances after Amos Frimpong converted a penalty late in the game after Seth Opare had been fouled in the 18-yard box.
Kotoko will now join the likes of Hearts of Oak, Medeama and Wa All Stars in a later date.
