Palermo, October 31 - AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri said he is hopeful his side's dire form may be coming to an end after they fought back from 2-0 down to salvage a 2-2 draw at Palermo on Tuesday. The struggling giants recovered thanks to second-half goals by Italy midfielder Riccardo Montolivo and in-form striker Stephan El Shaarawy after Fabrizio Miccoli and Franco Brienza had put the Sicilian hosts ahead. "The players did well to believe in themselves, to come back into the game and they played a great second half," said Allegri. "The objective is to get a run of results together to move up the league table". Milan are ninth in Serie A with 10 points from 11 games. They are 14 points adrift of leaders Juventus, who have played one game less as they will face Bologna at home later on Wednesday when most of the rest of the midweek fixture programme takes place.
