Yeni Malatyaspor went into the break with the advantage from the Ghanaian attacker, and maintained their composure after the break.

The visitors piled pressure on the hosts, Adana Demirspor, and after waves and waves of attack Simon Delli scored an own goal.

Benjamin Tetteh has been in top form for the Turkish club, with his performances earning him a call up to the senior national team.

His second half display for Ghana in the 3-1 win in Cape Coast, saw him start in the return league in Zimbabwe, where Black Stars won 1-0 courtesy a Thomas Partey freekick.

The 24-year-old is enjoying a good season after surpassing his total goals from last season, when he was on loan from Sparta Prague.

His run of form will be crucial for Ghana in the World Cup qualifiers next month.
