After losing previous league game in Wa, Inter Allies will be looking to bounce back to wining ways and maintain the unbeaten record at the Tema Stadium (this season) when they host giants Hearts of Oak on Sunday.
Coach Herbert Addo who was at the bench of the Eleven Is to One last season will return on the wrong ticket – with Hearts of Oak for his first match against us since he left.
Hearts have enjoyed some good run lately with wins over B.A United and Olympique Ngor which have boosted their morales. They have hit top form after a slow start with Gilbert Fiamenyo their main weapon, scoring 8 goals in 11 games.

The squad will welcome Ghana under-20 star Prosper Kasim back to the team once again after starring in the just ended CAF u-20 tournament in Senegal, where Ghana won bronze.
Ibrahim Alhassan is still nursing his injury and will miss the game, Lord Ofosuhene who had a knock in Wa will also miss the match.
Inter Allies have lost twice and won thrice in their last five league games with last two home wins. Despite not conceding at home this season, the Phobians pose threat with Fiamenyo up front.
Hearts of Oak in the other hand have recorded two victories in their last five league games and will come to face the likes of Fredrick Yamoah and in-form striker Sheriff Deo Mohammed.
