Alagie Nyassi, the head coach of Tallinding United, a club in the Gambia’s second division on Sunday attributed his team’s goalless draw against Lamin FC to the heat of the sun reflected on players during the game on the pitch.
“3 o’clock games are not easy to play,” Nyassi said after his team’s draw at the Serrekunda East mini stadium during the week seven of the GFA second division league.
Though his side have numerous goal chances to score during the game, Nyassi said he will take the draw in good faith and prepare for his up coming game, which is to be Serrekunda United to register a victory.
“Winning was difficult for my side because three O’ clock games is not easy to play, u see how hot the sun is, and we are not use to it which affected my side.” Nyassi said.
Meanwhile, the newly appointed coach of Lamin FC Lamin Kagbo, who came to the team after the departure of Tony Awih, also said three 3 o’clock is not a convenient time for a team to play.
“I am new in the team and I and the team have a lot more to do as playing in the second division is not easy,” he said.
