The Eleven is to One coach believes his charges will bounce back to winning ways despite two successive defeats after matchday six

Inter Allies coach Prince Owusu is optimistic his side will recover from their home defeat to Aduana Stars in the Ghana Premier League last weekend.

The Tema-based club have gone two games without a point, after losing 1-0 to Wa All Stars and falling 2-1 at home to Aduana.

The defeats leave Allies in the relegation battle, with five points.

“It was a big blow to us because we surrendered our lead and finally lost the game. But all the same, it’s good since we will learn from our mistakes and bounce back strongly in our best next game,” Owusu said.

“We played very well in the first half and that makes the defeat hurts me personally. My players allowed Aduana Stars to force their own strategies on us, meanwhile, we were playing at home.

“We were not better after the break, we didn’t show up and that’s bad, this is a setback, but we can handle it. I'm optimistic that we will pick a win in our next game on Wednesday. We need to show good reaction and pick points at this early stage of the season. I don't want to repeat what happened last season when we had to record a stalemate on final day to be able to survive relegation,” he added.

On Wednesday, Allies will face Olympics, who are the only side without a victory in the campaign, after losing to city rivals Hearts of Oak in the Mantse derby last weekend.
