Sharks pip Kenichi’s Inter Allies 1-0

Tanko Mohammed scored in the 27th minute of the first half to hand Elmina Sharks a 1-0 win over Inter Allies in the midweek games of the Ghana premier league.

The Elmina side had not beaten Inter Allies in two previous meetings that recorded a win and a draw for the Tema side. But on a third meeting between the two sides, Sharks emerged victorious with a gritty performance at their favoured ground, Nduom Sports Stadium.

From the commencement of the game Sharks had looked dangerous and threatened the Allies goal with clear cut chances but the defensive setup of Inter Allies held strong to cut out any attempt by the Sharks forward line that comprised of Tanko Mohammed and Felix Addo.

Elmina Sharks finally got their chance when Tanko found space in the 18 yard box to fire past Saed Salifu in post for Inter Allies. The home team nearly increased the tally when Felix Addo failed to profit from an incisive cross from Richard Mpong in the 37th minute.

Inter Allies however came strong into the game in the closing stages of the first half when Nigerien import Victorien Adebayor threatened the Sharks goal with a glancing header that flew inches wide off the post of Richard Attah.

Sharks resumed the second half on the front foot just as the first, as they went in search of the second goal that would cushion their lead but a combination of gritty defending and woeful shooting denied them.

Inter Allies would however awoke from their deep slumber in the 78th minute two players combined neatly to set up  Adebayor but for a timely interception by Ofoe Ofotsu, the Nigerien would have recorded his 4th goal of the season.

To stop Kenichi Yastsuahashi’s men from causing damage, Yaw Acheampong introduced Ebo Mends and Tetteh Nortey into the game to bolster the midfield taking off goalscorer Tanko Mohammed and Suraj Mohammed off while Isaac Quainoo came in for Felix Addo.

Inter Allies however, continued to probe for the equaliser, but Sharks simply won’t badge as they skillfully played to see out the game to register their second win of the season as well as first goal at the Nduom Sports Stadium this season.

The win moved Sharks up from 9th to 6th on the league log on 8 points while the defeated Inter Allies dropped from the second position to the 5th.

Sharks seek first victory over Inter Allies today

Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom’s Elmina Sharks return to their favourite ground, the Nduom Stadium to welcome Inter Allies in the Ghana premier league match day 6. Sharks have sojourned to Kumasi and Obuasi in the past three weeks where they have recorded a win and a draw against WAFA and Wa All Stars.

Will Samuel Arthur step up today too?

The home team have not won against Allies in two previous attempts, accumulating a point after drawing blank at home in the first ever meeting between the two teams last season. Coach Yaw Acheampong seem to have steadied his side as they have recovered from a painful first week last gasp defeat away to dreams with a win over WAFA and two draws against reigning champions Aduana Stars and 2015/2016 winners, Wa All Stars. Of particular importance in all these was the famous victory he chalked against the academy boys WAFA who had beaten Sharks in all two previous meetings.

Inter Allies also returned to winning ways courtesy Nigerien import, Voctorien Adebayo whose strike helped them chalk a 1-0 victory over the Sogakope lads after suffering a debilitating 6-0 defeat in Dormaa Ahenkro. Coach Kenichi would relish a victory today as he seeks to add Sharks to his plate.

This afternoon’s encounter affords Yaw Acheampong and his team a perfect opportunity to offer some level of excitement to the vociferous Elmina faithfuls who have only watched their side once in the five week old season, against Aduana Stars. Another reason Sharks can’t afford to slip up is the fact that they need a massive dose of confidence going into the Hearts of Oak game in Cape Coast on Saturday.

Facts behind today’s meeting.

Sharks and Inter Allies have played two games in the Ghana premier league. The ‘BorweakuMba’ have no win in the two games, drawing 0-0 at home and losing 2-0 in the reverse fixture at the El Wak stadium. Sharks are yet to score a goal at the Nduom sports stadium this season. Although their 2-0 win over WAFA is considered a home match, they staged that victory at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi. 

Sharks have not lost at home since the 1-0 defeat to Great Olympics in week 28 of last season. They have won once since the defeat to Great Olympics, a 2-0 victory over Wa All Stars in the last match of the 2016/2017 season.  Inter Allies lie 3rd on the log on 8 points while Sharks is 9th on 5 points. A win for Sharks could see them leapfrog the Tema based side on the league log.
