Inter Allies coach Tony Lokko has charged his players to improve their goal scoring rate after a disappointing draw against WAFA on Sunday.

The Eleven is to One boys spurned several chances in their 1-1 draw with the Academy Boys in Accra, a result Lokko believes is not a reflection of the game.

‘’We had lost twice in a row and we were very determined to pick up the 3 points. We came in very offensively to make sure we carry the day. We outplayed them and I don't think the scoreline was a reflection of the game,’’ he told interalliesfc.com.

Inter Allies have managed only four points from five games and are winless in their last three matches. The Tema based club are under pressure to perform after finding themselves just a point above relegation.

‘’Definitely there was pressure because losing two on the trot wasn’t good news for the team so we put everything in place to make sure we pick up the three points but we were just unlucky to have a draw,’’ says Lokko.

Despite the difficult start to the campaign, the experience gaffer is confident his team will bounce back strongly as the season progresses.

‘’Getting the equalizer was a relief but we wanted the three points. We want to win our matches but its still work in progress. We create a lot of chances in the game which we are not burying and that's the main problem of the team. We are working on it and we believe we shall get there.’‘
