Published on: 04 February 2020

Inter Allies coach Tony Lokko has revealed that his side went into the game against King Faisal very determined to secure victory. 

The Accra based side had been on a run of five games without victory but strolled to a 4-2 win against King Faisal last Saturday.

According to the former Tema Youth coach, it was a 'do and die' affair for his boys, who were yearning for a second win in the campaign.

‪“Actually we took this game as a do and die affair to make sure we pick up the 3 points,”‬ he said after the game.

‪“Tactically we came into the game very strongly with a lot of transformation in the team, bringing in some new players on board and it  really worked,” he added.‬

Nigerien Victorien Adebayor and Samuel Armah scored in the first half to hand the Capelli Boys a well deserved cushion.

But Faisal came into the second half strongly and equalized through Osman Ibrahim and Mohammed Mustapha.

While the game appeared to be heading to a draw, Samuel Armah restored the lead for the home side on 85 minutes before Michael Gyamerah sealed victory in injury time.
