Gambia: Armed Forces Coach Delighted At Second Straight Win

The head coach of Gambia Armed Forces Football Club has expressed delight at his side's second straight win in the domestic league.

Senegalese El-Hadji Sey was speaking to Observer Sports following his side's 2-0 defeat of Gambia Ports Authority in a game played at the Box Bar Mini-Stadium in Brikama on Saturday.

"I thank God today for making it possible to collect the maximum points, and I congratulate my boys for the performance," he said, while hailing the tactical brilliance of Ports Authority.

Despite a poor start to the season that saw them lose their first four games, Sey believes that the season is still very young and in the light of that, he is not ruling out their chances of securing the title for the first time in a decade. But he admitted that a lot of work still needs to be done in order to achieve that.

"Despite the fact that we are only on six points while the leading team is on thirteen, we will not give hope and we will prepare well for the next game against Seaview ," he added.

For his part, the assistant coach of GPA, Haji Tunkara, said it was not a bad game, despite the defeat. He added that it was always going to be very difficult coming up against an Armed Forces side desperate for points following defeats in their first four games.
