Gambia: Pa Saikou Kujabi Confined to Youth Team Football

Gambia international Pa Saikou Kujabi continues to be confined to youth team football having helped the Hibernian U-20 to a 3-1 defeat of Dundee in the Scottish Premier League U20 League at Dens Park.

The Gambian international was one of the scorers in the win together with Danny Handling and Euan Smith that helped the young Hibs side collect their fourth consecutive win in the league and firing them up to fourth in the 15-league.

Speaking after the win, head of Academy Coaching James McDonaugh praised his team for their win, but stressed the players can perform better. "Handling, Kujabi and Euan Smith got our goals which I felt, we more than deserved. The biggest thing was we were two minutes away from four consecutive clean sheets in the league but we defended poorly for one moment and it cost us. Overall we played to an acceptable standard, but we can and will play better."

Pa Saikou, 26, is yet to play for the Hibernian first team this season with his last game coming on the 28 August in a game against Queen of the South in the second round of the Scottish League Cup - a match which the team lost 2-0.
