Abdoulie Bojang, head coach of Steve Biko FC, has admitted it is difficult to improve and rectify mistakes in the domestic league if a club has to play twice a week.

Lie Bojang, who was speaking to reporters on Wednesday at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium following his side’s goalless draw against Banjul United, added that he was ‘very much’ disappointed with his team’s performance against the first division league debutants.

He also admitted that finishing has been their problem since the Super Cup final against Gamtel FC but added that they will work to see what they can do.

The league is still too young but they want to achieve a certain number of points by the end of the first round, he pointed out.

Missing chances is part of the game and sometimes you have to accept it, he stated, saying they have been working very hard on training.

Last year was easier for them as they were scoring goals, he remarked but said they would go and work on their weaknesses to improve on their scoring tact the coming games.

Head coach Bojang observed that it is easier to play against bigger teams than ‘small teams’ who play physical football.

Madior Saine, head coach of Banjul United, said he was satisfied collecting a point against last year’s league champions.

Collecting a point against the league champions was ‘important’ for them as debutants in the first division league, he added.

Their main priority, he disclosed, is to maintain themselves in the topflight league this season.

He also said they would prepare well to face their next encounter even more than they did for their previous games.
