Three minutes before the interval, Allies managed to regain their lead through Adebayor.
Richard Acquaah gave a strong pass from right side to the Niger international in the center but the last man was slow and Adebayor ran past him to go one on one with the goalkeeper and he slotted home nicely.

Five minutes into the game, Allies struck the bar twice as Samuel Armah and Michel Otou efforts hit the post.
