Great Olympics climbed temporarily third on the Ghana Premier League table after beating Inter Allies 2-0 at the Accra Sports Stadium in Friday’s sole game in matchday 9.
It was the first test for former Ghana international Yaw Preko who replaced Annor Walker as the head coach of the club during the course of the week.
Olympics had gone on a two-game losing streak after throwing away leads against Aduana Stars and AshantiGold without head coach Walker and his assistant who have both been taken ill.
Allies, the host, also head a new coach at the helm who was also hoping to halt the slide after losing the matchday 8 clash against Berekum Chelsea in the Bono region.
It took just 9 minutes for Olympics to take the lead when Ebenezer Sekyere was fouled inside the box after rounding up 3 Allies defenders. Abbey Quaye expertly dispatched the kick to put the visitors ahead.
In the second-half he was presented with another chance to seal the win for the Wonders Boys when an Allies defender handled the ball inside the box. And, Quaye fired past Rashid Musah in between the sticks for the hosts.
Allies still remain the drop zone while Olympics have moved to third on the table.
