Inter Allies were held to a goalless drawn game at the Tema Sports Stadium in the penultimate league match of the 2014/15 First Capital Plus Premier League.
The week 29 fixture saw the ‘Eleven Is To One’ dominate the entire duration of the game but failed to put the ball at the back of the net after several chances.
Coach Paa Kwesi Fabin introduced Kwamina Ropapa Mensah who had recovered from illness to pair with Sheriff Deo Mohammed upfront, leaving Sulley Mohammed, Fredrick Boateng and Fuseini Eliasu as strikers on the bench.
Midfielder Emmanuel Nettey had to be deployed to center back in the absence of Baba Mensah and Joseph Aidoo to form a new partnership with Wahab Ackwei in the club’s last home game for the season.
With the intention of a top four finish, Inter Allies stepped on the accelerator from the blast of the referee’s whistle as they attacked. The visitors had different intentions as well as a draw or win could be vital for them, hence coiled in.
George Asamoah could have opened the scoring just two minutes into the match, he was one-on-one with the goalkeeper but his final shot was hit straight at the goalkeeper who punched away easily.
Lord Ofosuhene, Fredrick Opoku Yamoah and Kwamina Ropapa Mensah all went very close to the opener but all their efforts went inches wide after series of pressure and attacks from Inter Allies until the break.
Even though Bechem United were very quiet on the day, they had some chances of their own but goalkeeper Kwame Osei and the defensive partnership of Emmanuel Nettey and Wahab Ackwei were solid to clear off the little troubles.
The last few minutes saw Inter Allies with intense pressure but failed to find the net, it ended 0-0.
Inter Allies are unmoved on the league table as they still lie 4th with 42 points.
XI – Kwame Osei (c), Simon Martey, Abass Mohammed, Emmanuel Nettey, Wahab Ackwei, George Asamoah, Gockel Ahortor, Lord Ofosuhene (Sulley Mohammed), Fredrick Opoku Yamoah, Kwamina Ropapa Mensah (Evans Mensah) & Shreriff Deo Mohammed.
