Monday, February 25, 2019

Second Division league leaders Sporting Real, Friday suffered another defeat in the hands of Latrikunda United after a 1-0 scoreline in a game played at the Serrekunda East mini stadium.

Latrikunda United’s Omar Minteh gave his side the maximum after a fine finish in the 85th minute, making it two consecutive wins for them after beating Steve Biko in their previous encounter.

This is the second time of Sporting Real conceding defeat, after their defeat in their game against Lions of Banjul.

Sporting Real’s head coach Saihou Manjang said their defeat was caused by injuries and fatigue from his side.  “We lost two games because of injuries and fatigue from my side. Most of our key players are injured and some are tired,” he said.

Fondly call Mourinho, coach Manjang praised his players for making a good performance despite losing, noting that they will go back to their training to improve on their mistakes for subsequent games

But Latrikunda United’s assistant coach Alagie Omar Beka said they have rectified their mistakes at the training ground which is why they made two consecutive wins.  “We have always been showing good performance but winning has always been our problem. But we have now worked on that and we have started  winning our games, starting with Steve Biko,” he said.

Latrikunda United, who have their head coach suspended will now face Serrekunda East Bi, while Sporting Real will travel to Jarra Soma to face Kiang West

Despite the defeat, Sporting Real still top the league with 24 points after twelve matches, while Latrikunda United occupies sixth position with 16 points.
