The Secretary-General of Banjul Sports Committee, Ebou Faye whose face was beamed with sorrow after they were entertained to a hard-fought one-nil defeat by the defending champions Bakau as part of the semi-final encounter of the 2nd edition of the ongoing Baby Muhamnmeh Jammeh Perpetual Zonal Competition, at the Serekunda West Mini-Stadium on Saturday, expressed disappointment after his side conceded their third consecutive defeat in the hands of bitter rivals, courtesy of Alasan Camara's clinical finish.

The former Real De Banjul Head Coach who spoke to this reporter in this interview could not hide his disappointment for losing to the rivals for the third time in succession.

The Bakau side is a better side than Banjul because winning them in three consecutive seasons is a clear indication to the fact that they have an edge over Banjul, the disappointed General Secretary of Banjul Sports Committee admitted.

He added "we deserve to win the game, considering the numerical advantages we had over Bakau today but we are occasionally being denied by poor finishing and if you don’t score, you can never win the game."

When I asked Ebou Faye what more effort can Banjul do in order to put an end to their unimpressive run of form against a team that denied them two zonal cup titles in two successive years, the technician was however quick to reveal that Banjul needs to prepare psychologically against Bakau so as to end their embarrassing defeat against them next year.

Despite conceding another defeat to Bakau, Ebou Faye believed Bakau side did not play a better football today and they did not deserve to win the game although he failed to rule out the defending champion’s possibility of clinching their third consecutive zonal cup trophy once again.

"Bakau were not our toughest opponent, Brikama was tougher than them but we managed to escape against them and failed to repeat similar success against a team that did not play better in the game, but managed to survive with the only goal they scored," said Ebou Faye.
