Gambia Armed Forces FC head coach Alagie Sey has said his side respects Brikama United but will go all out for the maximum points in their next encounter.

Sey, who also said they respect all teams in the league, was speaking to reporters on Wednesday following his side’s goalless draw with Bakau United in their week-two game of the Gambia Football Federation (GFF) first division league clash played at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium.

“The most important thing is not to lose,” he said when asked about his reactions after beating 2012-13 league champions in his opening game of the campaign and dropping 2 points in his second game.

“It is not bad collecting a point,” he went on, saying they still need to work on a lot of things.

The league is still too young, he stated, adding that every game has its own approach.

“We respect Brikama United but will go all out for the 3 points,” he remarked but was quick to add that collecting a point in their home ground (Brikama Mini Stadium) would not be a bad result.

They have an objective, which is to win the league title, he declared, saying they are also building a team.

He pointed out that all 12 teams in the league have new faces of players in their squads. “They have to work, help their players and be part of the team so they can achieve something [winning the title],” he added.

Amadou Demba, a member of Bakau United technical bench, described the game as fair, saying it was a counter attacking game.

“We created a lot of chances but were just unfortunate,” he said, adding that the performance against the Gambia Armed Forces was better than the one against Wallidan FC.

Demba stated that they have been working on goal-scoring every day, but was quick to observe that goal-scoring is a general Gambian problem.

He was disappointed with the draw but satisfied with the performance of his team, he said, adding that they will go back and rectify their mistakes to ensure they do not drop 2 points in their next game again.

He said he has a young team this season and need to work on the mental, physical and technical ability of their players, saying development is a process.
