The accused players with two yellow cards Haruna Sanneh and Lamin Bojang are said with one yellow card.

According to the Banyaka sports Committee, the Kombo South has launched an investigation into the matter and realized that Haruna Sanneh and Lamin Bojang are eligible to played the semi final against Tujereng , adding that the Kombo South district Sports Committee said that Masireh Jammeh was not qualified because he is a native of Madiana in Kombo North.
