Lamin Darboe, head coach of Sukuta zonal team, has said it is too early to rule out his side from the zonal competition despite losing its opening two games of the tournament.

Darboe, who was speaking to reporters shortly after his team’s 1-nil loss to Serrekunda West on Wednesday at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium, said their chances of making it to the next stage of the competition are very slim but one should not rule them out completely because football “you can never predict”.

Losing two games in a row was hard to swallow but they had to, he said, adding that they prepared to win after losing the opening game of the tournament.

His side played well against Serrekunda West and also created chances but could not capitalise on them.

“Our team is full of young players this year,” he also said, adding: “Their confidence is increasing every game.”

Alfusainey Fatty, head coach of Serrekunda West, expressed delight over the victory after drawing his opening encounter of the campaign.

He said he knew they were going to beat Sukuta, adding that they could have even won by 3-0 if they had capitalised on their chances.

He remarked that they would approach their next encounter with the same mentality of going to collect the maximum points.
