Coach of NPFL side Kada City Adams Usman has blamed his side’s loss to Abia Warriors in the matchday four of the NPFL fixture to on bad officiating.
Isaac Emeka 83rd minute strike from the penalty spot was all that Abia Warriors needed to condemn Kada City to their first loss of the season in Umuahia township stadium on Wednesday.
While speaking to the media after the game, the gaffer said the second assistant referee was not well positioned to spot an Abia Warriors player who was in an offside position before he was fouled in the penalty box by Sunday Okoh.
“Our game plan was to pick a point at least and we were that close until that penalty call. I’m not the type who complains about officiating, but if the AR1 was well positioned, he would have flagged the player who was in an offside position before the center referee wrongly awarded that penalty.
He, however, added that the team will continue to work hard for better performance in the next game.
“We will continue to work on our attack until we start giving the performance we wanted”,
Kada City will host FC Ifeanyi Uba in matchday 5 this Sunday at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna by 4 PM.
