“It was a very tough game and I think the boys did well,” Bamweyana said after the game, he also added.
“They are tough opponents and it was a tough game away from home.”
“They contained most of the things they threw at us, their direct approach and long balls, I felt we dealt with them well.”
“I felt we let ourselves down in a few areas where we could have probably had more control and covered some of the gaps,” he added.
The former SC Villa and Express coach also added: “Overall, I felt we deserved to win but there some very important calls that went against us but there is nothing we can do about that.”
“We take the draw but I don’t think it is the result we would have wanted or deserved but given the situation, I think we can say we take the point,” Bamweyana stated.
