Persitara's attacking riches

I've had a few laughs at Persitara this last season and there were those who felt they would all but fall off the ISL map. Instead they go into today's Copa Indonesia draw brimming with confidence having thumped PSIS 4-1 and boasting an impressive arsenal up front.

Rahmat Rivai is a sometime full international who has fallen off the radar somewhat since moving from Persiter last pre season but he has had a good season, scoring goals in a struggling side.

New signing Prince Bello Kabir has come from Iranian side Sepahan and settled in well scoring against the Semarang side in the Copa as well as against Persita in the ISL.

Behind them has been John Tarkpor who was rumoured to have been on his way to big boys Arema. Instead he's stayed and if the side from North Jakarta beat PSM they will be honing on Arema in the ISL table.

Esiah Benson has been brought into the midfield to add more experience and strength while Persitara have added highly rated young striker Mostapha Aji from neighnouring Persikota and he should be able to feature in their home game against fellow strugglers Deltras this weekend.

Two wins in back to back home games will have the long suffering Persitara fans, thinking life ain't so bad after all.
