Inter Allies picked a point in Obuasi with a 2-2 stalemate against New Edubiase at the Len Clay Stadium in mid-week’s First Capital Plus Premier League week 26 match.
Issah Yakubu scored his debut Inter Allies goal in the 44th minute after Edubiase had taken the lead. Sheriff Deo Mohammed added to his tally with a very strong header in the second half which was later equalized.
Coach Paa Kwesi Fabin handed Sulley Mohammed a starting role up front to pair with Sheriff Deo Mohammed as the only change from the side that beat Heart of Lions 2-1 in Tema in the previous game.
From the sound the referee’s whistle, Edubiase mounted an attacking pressure which earned them an early goal in the 6th minute. Bernard Ofori slotted home from a teasing cross.
Inter Allies then came from behind to put a sterling performance and dictated the play with their sweet flowing inter-passing game.
Getting to the end of the first half, Sheriff Deo Mohammed got the ball at the back of the been but was wrongly ruled out for offside. The striker beat his marker and dribbled the goalkeeper before slotting home nicely, which was called offside.
Just few minutes after, Issah Yakubu scored the equalizer, his debut goal. Frederick Yamoah launched in a long throw from the left to Sheriff Mohammed, the latter set Issah who curled home beautifully on the 44th minute.
In the second half, Edubiase tried to replicate their first half attacking form but Inter Allies defence were resolute and helped the midfielders and strikers to attack.
With twenty minutes to end the game, Sheriff Deo Mohammed grabbed his 9th goal of the season with a very powerful header.
Fuseini Eliasu had caused the damage already by taking on three defenders starting and attack from the center, he passed to Lord Ofosuhene on the right and he launched a ‘delicious’ cross for Sheriff to head home.
Late in the game when Inter Allies were hoping for a third away win, Alhassan Nuhu scored the leveler.
Inter Allies now lie 4th on the league log with 40th points with four more games to end the season.
