Inter Allies bounced back to winning ways with a 1-0 win over Asante Kotoko at the El Wak Stadium on Wednesday.
Young midfielder Abdul-Halik Hudu’s 31st minute goal was all the Capelli Boys needed to halt the revived Porcupine Warriors.
Coach Prince Owusu made six changes to the side that drew with Berekum Chelsea on Sunday, Salifu Saed replaced Kwame Baah in posts.
Paul Abanga, Wahab Ackwei, Isaac Twum, Prince Baffoe and Hashmin Musah returned to the line up after missing the previous match.
The visitors settled quickly and played some nice football in the early embers of the game, Saddick Adams announced presence with early incursions.
After the 10th minute mark, Isaac Twum and Isaac Osae combined to put Paul Abanga on goal but the full back ballooned his effort.
The ‘Eleven Is To One’ gained momentum and searched for the opener desperately, Antwi Kwame Amoako tried his luck from distance in the 19th minute but his effort went wide.
Abdul Halik Hudu broke the deadlock in the 31st minute from close range, connecting Paul Abanga’s cross from the right.
Allies held on until the break. The Porcupine Warriors returned from recess a better side, they attacked from all angles.
Baba Mahama and Ashitey Ollenu were brought on the second half for the giants to add bite in front but nothing worked on the day for them.
In the end, the ‘Eleven Is To One’ held on to their slender lead to beat Asante Kotoko.
Abdul Halik Hudu was named the NASCO man of the match.
