Alhagie Sey, head coach of the Gambia Armed Forces, has expressed confidence that his team can still win the league title with just two games remaining for the league to come to an end.

Sey, who was speaking to reporters on Sunday following his side’s goalless draw with Samger FC in the week-twenty encounter of the GFF first division league game played at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium, stated that he was the least happy with the draw noting that his team failed to go all out for the three points.

“We have taken it in good faith,” he said, adding that they will fight to collect maximum six points in their remaining two games.

He said that if it was not for the team’s inconsistency this season, they would have won the league by now, adding that they are still working, however.

He said he believes they can win the league, as it is that belief he has instilled in the players.

He also said they have young players in their setup this season and will work on their physiology because the league is at its closing stage.

“I pray that the teams at the top lose their remaining two games,” he said jokingly.

Jain Joof, head coach of Samger FC, said the game was difficult as both teams wanted to collect the maximum three points.

Armed Forces have very good strikers and were able to contain them to collect a point, which was a good result, he added.

He was satisfied collecting a point looking at the stage the league is.

He said they would go all out for the maximum points in their next game, adding that their objective is to always maintain themselves in the topflight league.
