Brazilian attacking middie – Fabio Gama kept his scoring form alive on Wednesday to help Asante Kotoko cruise to 4-0 win over a helpless Bechem United at the Obuasi Len Clay stadium.

The midfielder [Gama] set up the first goal and scored the second before showing class in one of his brilliant outings since he signed for the former champions.

Gama combined effectively with Augustine Okrah, Ibrahim Moro and Andy Kumi in the larger part of the game by rewarding the technical team for keeping faith in him.

New recruit Michael Vinícius Silva also scored in an eventful Samba day for Asante Kotoko.

Christopher Nettey, Naby Keita and Latif Anabila made way for Samuel Frimpong, Habib Mohammed and new signing Francis Andy Kumi.

Abdul Ganiu Ismail netted first inside 13 minutes after he was set up by Fabio Gama following a free kick. Gama increased the tally for Asante Kotoko seconds before the half time whistle after latching onto a pass from Augustine Okrah.

By the 60th minute, the game was far from the reach of Bechem as new signing Andy Kumi prodded home a sweet cross from the left.

With eight minutes of the game remaining, Vinicius Silva capped his Kotoko debut with a goal as he pounced on a rebound to tap home.

This win has lifted Kotoko to third in the standings with 31 points, two points behind leaders Great Olympics and one adrift second placed Karela United. The Porcupine Warriors will next take on Berekum Chelsea on Sunday.
