Foday Bah attributes poor performance to poor referring

Wallidan's poor start to the season is showing no sign of abating after failing to win a game barely three weeks into an exciting and surprising moment in the country's top flight football.

The blue boys as they are widely known have not been enjoying a perfect start to the season, but the Banjul club can absolutely be boastful of being the most successful Division One team in Gambian history with an impressive total of 10 league titles to its name.

They are still struggling to replicate the form that made them successful over the past few years.

City boys began the campaign with a hard fought 1-1 draw against the hotel club Sea View and went on to loss to Coach Jane Joof and his academy boys Samger who beat them 1-nil in their Week Second fixtures. But they collected a fair result against city rivals Real De Banjul with a 1-1 score line as part of Week Third fixtures at the Independence Stadium in Bakau on Saturday.

Foday Bah is the man at the helm of affairs and spoke to Pointsport shortly after an intense and action-packed match in this interview.

"I am very much disappointed with poor officiating of the game by the central referee because we were denied what looks like a clear goal which should not have been disallowed," the disappointed Wallidan coach told the media.

He was referring to the fact that his sides were denied celebrating what appeared to be their second of the night. But unfortunately, it was ruled out for an offside by the central referee, an occasion which was understood to have left Foday Bah in disappointment, describing the decision as unfair.

He however admitted that he is not enjoying a good start to the season, although he remains confident of recovering from what is widely referred to as a frustrating start to the twelve club championship with only two points registered by the former champions.
