Supreme Court blames defeat on poor officiating
Supreme Court FC sweat merchant, Henry Haggai has attributed his team’s 0-1 loss to host Spotlight FC of Katsina at the weekend to the poor handling of the match by the centre referee.
Haggai who praised the resilience of his players, whose efforts at goal were truncated by match officials, said poor handling of the match denied them of vital away point.
Haggai was furious about the decisions taken by the center Referee Mr. A Gbadamasi as unfortunate, insisting that his side deserved victory in the match.
“We didn’t deserve to lose this match in any way but the officials decided to do what they like even the match commissioner admitted that the Center Referee was biased. I must say that my players played to instructions and fought to cancel the early goal which came as a result of deflection.
“What has happened has happened. This kind of actions by match officials can’t help to develop the game of football in Nigeria. We will continue to do our best as the season progresses,” the coach noted.
