Following his side’s 1-0 defeat to Wallidan in the Week 6 fixtures of the Gambia Football Association division one league, the head coach of Armed Forces, Alagie Sey, has said his side’s recent defeat to Wallidan was because they failed to capitalise on their limited goal-scoring opportunities during the course of the game.
Coach Sey made these remarks in an exclusive interview with reporters shortly after the game at the Serrekunda East Mini-stadium on Wednesday.
Sey pointed out that Armed Forces played well but they squandered all their goal-scoring opportunities away, while Wallidan happened to make the best use of their chances, which resulted in a loss that has left the team in a funny position in the league.
He expressed his determination to ensure they emerge winners of the subsequent games as the league matches progress.
Pap Gaye, a coaching staff of Wallidan, said he was really glad to take the maximum points against Armed Forces and expressed optimism that Wallidan “will certainly maintain” their winning spirit as the league games unfold.
Gaye stated that Wallidan started their pre-season very lately, which really hampered their performance in the early stage of the league; hence a victory against Armed Forces has therefore helped the team to close the gap as well as keep their title hopes alive.
