Post Match Interview:.

Coach Abdullahi Adamu, Wikki Tourists FC.

This is not the result we worked for,but then there’s nothing we could do about it.

The boys played well especially in the second half but chances created could not be utilized and this is an area we have been having problem with and also working on it says the coach.

Coach Abdullahi added that, we knew they(3SC) are coming here with a mission and therefore we told our boys not underate them and you see what the boys played,but certainly luck wasn’t on our side and don’t forget that 3-4 of our first team players were absent because of cumulated yellow card cautions, Abdullahi concludes.
