The Silver coach, was given a yellow card after he over-crossed and invaded his counterpart touchline box in reaction to referee’s decision.

Speaking after the match, De Jongh admitted that the caution from match officials was valid but said it came because of their indecisive action on a foul-play, that wasn’t supposed to be given out to their opponent.

He then commended the introduction of new faces like Adiel Kaduya who showcased great skill and scoring brace.

He explained, “This is a clear win for us. And there is competition on selection of players now, others are coming up, as we need inclusiveness in selection of players.”

Chisomo Kamlanje, Ntaja FC coach cited inexperience of his players and new pitch as one of the major factors that contributed to the loss.

“This Stadia is too big, and silver strikers use this ground and they have experience with it. So, when we go back and play in our league will attain experience.” said Kamlanje.
