Aduana Stars Coach, Nurudeen Ahmed has charged his players to go for a convincing victory in their second league game against WA all stars during a presser at the Osagyefo Oseadeayo Agyeman Badu I Stadium.

The team lost their first premier league game against International Allies last week in Tema even though they were tipped by pundits to come out as victors of the fixture.  At a pre-match press conference held on Friday ahead of their clash against Wa AllStars,  the coach hinted at what he figured may have been the cause of the defeat. Paramount among  the reasons he said was the teams inability to play a high profile match during the pre-season after the G6 tourney.

"This affected the competitiveness of our preparation and in turn affected limited momentum before  the league" he remarked

The coach admonished his captains insubordination and supported the punishment meted out to him. He further advised all stakeholders of the club to put to rest the issue and rally strongly behind the team.

Concluding his speech, he thanked the supporters for their understanding and support and threw a challenge to his players to mount a monstrous performance and give osagyefour and the supporters their monies worth.

Aduana Stars FC head coach Nurudeen Ahmed insists individual blunders cost the team in the 2-0 defeat at Inter Allies.

The Dormaa-based side lost 2-0 to Inter Allies on the opening day of the 2016 season at the Tema Sports Stadium.

Aduana fell down to two goals in the first half, and although they reacted quite positively in the second, they could not get a share of the points.

However, coach Nurudeen says the team must work assiduously to make amends in the next match.

“I think that first half was a poor performance but we did well in the second half. But unfortunately, that was too little too late,” the head coach told aduanafc.com

“We were able to put pressure on them but we couldn’t score. In the second half it was hard luck because we dominated.

“But individual blunders cost us and we have to work on our defensive side and see the ways we can [rectify that]. In midfield, we had problems so we need to see how we can work on that area as fast as possible so that we can be in good shape to win on Sunday.
 
“We were just unlucky that they utilized their chances because the chances we had, if we had utilized them, we would have had four or more. But that is football: anybody who utilizes their chances wins the game.”
 
He added: “The way forward is that it is the first match and so we will try to put it behind us and work assiduously so that the team will start winning.”

Aduana Stars captain Godfred Saka says lack of concentration in defense cost the team in the last game, but he says the team will work on their mistakes ahead of the coming game.

The Ogya boys started slowly in the game against Inter Allies, and they were made to pay dearly as Allies shot into a two-goal lead.

Despite the fact that Aduana Stars came back strongly in the second half, they were not able to breach the Inter Allies defense.

Saka wants his side to correct their mistakes in the next game.

“We were in the game in the first 20 minutes, we matched them well in terms of ball possession,” Saka told aduanafc.com in the post match interview.

“But after that we lacked concentration in defense and that’s how they took the lead. We played better in the second half; we put pressure on them and created a lot of chances. But it was good luck to the Inter Allies team and hard luck for us.

“We are going to correct our mistakes and then start from there. We have new players and we are still working on our telepathy. We are hopeful we will be able to communicate better in our coming games. We are still working.”

Aduana Stars suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Inter Allies in the first match of the 2016 Ghana Premier League season at the Tema Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Ropapa Mensah and Isaac Twum were on target for the home side in the first half of the game.

Aduana Stars fought back in the second half but they could not find a goal.

Coach Nurudeen gave new signing Joseph Addo the nod in goal while Yahaya Mohammed was also handed his debut.

Inter Allies took the game to  the visitors in the opening minutes of the game whereas Aduana took the period to settle.

But Allies hit hard through Ropapa who reacted quickest to head a cross into the net.

The visitors rejigged their approach as they sought a way back into the game but having hemmed Allies back, they were hit again.

Isaac Twum inflected the damage to make Aduana's task of overhauling the first goal a mountainous problem by doubling the score just before halftime.

Aduana came out for the second half with the intention of grabbing an early goal to unsettle Allies, but the hosts were very solid in defense.

The Ogya boys tightened up at the back in the second half and prevented Allies from getting clear cut chances. But at the other end, they could not get a chance to breach the Allies defense.

Aduana fell for the third time against Inter Allies at Tema, but they will be hoping to make amends next weekend.

Aduana Stars set for opener against Allies

Aduana Stars will play as guests of Inter Allies FC in the first game of the 2016 Ghana Premier League season at the Tema Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Ogya boys have taken a long trip to the capital to meet Inter Allies in the opening game of the 2016 season.

Aduana Stars have a fully fit squad for the encounter though Zakaria Mumuni and Bright Adjei will undergo late fitness tests to determine their readiness for the game.

The meeting with Inter Allies will be the fifth encounter between the sides. In the previous four meetings, the home side has always carried the day.

Head coach Nurudeen Ahmed revealed he has no selection worries for the game despite having an array of big name stars and outstanding youngsters knocking on the doors of the first team.

"It’s normal [with the array of stars at our disposal] but selection is going to be based on the number of training sessions that we have had, tactical preparations and how they are going to fit into the team tactics, and the way forward," said the head coach. "It’s going to be based on performance and how the players can adapt to the technical elements of the game at stake because it’s an away match and we are going to be under pressure so we need to have people who are focused; who are tactically good and can stand the test of the match."

Yahya Mohammed, Richard Mpong, Joseph Addo, Zakaria Mumuni, and a host of talented youngsters have joined the first team, and they are all ready for their debut appearance for the club.

Aduana Stars have had it tough on the road last season, but after placing second in the 2014/15 season, the players are ready to go one step better this season. 

Inter Allies stand in our way, but a victory in Tema will surely set the tone for what's to come for Aduana in the 2016 season. 

The two sides have met four times in the league since the 2013/14 season. Aduana Stars have won two and lost two of the four games against Inter Allies. 

Past meetings: 

2014/15 Inter

Allies 2-0 Aduana

Aduana 1-0 Inter Allies

2013/14

Aduana 2-1 Inter Allies

Inter Allies 1-0 Aduana

Aduana Stars FC midfielder Noah Martey says he wants to replicate his good performances last season at Aduana Stars.

The ex-Bechem United star had a stellar performance with his former side last season, netting eight league goals to help his side in the season.

Noah says he would love to score a lot of goals for Aduana Stars starting with Sunday’s game with Inter Allies.

 “I had a good season with Bechem United last year and I would love to do same or better in Aduana. It does not only depend on me, I pray to God to grant me the strength to be able to have a good season here. I am praying for a good game on my debut and I hope to bring my experience to the Aduana team.”

Noah has also played for Inter Allies and he will be facing his former side on Sunday with Aduana Stars at the Tema Sports Stadium. The midfielder expects a tough match against Inter Allies and his former coach, Herbert Addo.

 “We cannot take the game as an easy match because Inter Allies are playing at home. They will do all they can to frustrate us but if we prepare well, we can get a win. I believe if we put in more effort, we can get a win on Sunday,” he said.

“I have played with Inter Allies and I can say that their strength rests in their lateral defensive positions. They have very good left backs and right backs, and most of the time, their midfield is very strong. They like to attack on the wings. We just have to be cautious in those positions and when we chain them there, we can get the win. We have to be good in defense, midfield and attack to be able to get the win.

“I will be facing my former coach Herbert Addo too. He is a very good coach and when his side takes the lead, they coil back and become very hard to beat. So we have to tighten our defense and not concede first. Our game plan should be simple: if we don’t score, they should not score.

He added:  “I want to assure our fans that they should always keep us in their prayers and continue to exercise restraint when we go wrong. It’s better if they talk to the players one on one and show us what they feel we should do at certain times.”
