The win sends the Power Warriors to third position on the league table with 16 points, just a point below league leaders, Karela United, and tied on points with Ashantigold.
Kotoko relatively dominated the first half of the game, but both sides could not find the back of the net in the first period of the game.
The 23-time league winners capitalized on a set-piece to grab the three points on the road in the 71st minute.
Nettey found himself in acres of space inside the six-yard box to head in Patrick Asmah’s beautifully taken free-kick closer to the right corner flag of attack.
Asante Kotoko will now look to regroup before hosting Aduana Stars in a matchday 10 fixture on Sunday night while Dwarfs welcome WAFA in the afternoon.
