The assistant coach of Old Edwardians Football club Freaky Koroma Friday stated after his boys went down to the defending champions Ports Authority by a goal to nil in the ongoing Premier League at the National Stadium that his players “lost concentration.”
He said the defeat was as a result of this and why they conceded that particular goal in the match after they played so well. The match was arguably in their control but they failed to convert some of the balls to goals, and their opponents made use of their only chance in the game to score the only goal in the match.
He also recalled that in their match against FC Kallon they were leading and it was during the dying minutes after the team lost concentration that FC Kallon got the equalizer – this has affected the team again.
He said that the attackers did everything possible but the goal getter Magnus Campbell should have finished the match but wasted most of the chances.
He said the defeat against Ports Authority was their first defeat and they still have a long way to go in the league.
While the head coach of Ports Authority Football team Hassan Milla said that they have played so well in the game that they actually deserved the winning as a defending champion and that they were under pressure “but we are now coming into the league gradually” and have also started scoring goals.
“In our previous matches we have played very well but we were unable to score goals which is very important in any match if they we are to win over Old Edwardians which will bring the team back to form.” They have played five games and have now secured 8 points.
In the other league match played, East End Lions defeated Mount Aureol Galaxy by two goals to one (2-1) according to East End Lions Coach John Sesay the winning is very important as Mount Aureol Galaxy have a youthful side and they are a good team which is very difficult to defeat.
That is why all the three points are very important to his boys and they are looking forward to the other matches to still continue their winning spree in the league.
