"We were just unfortunate to have lost the match, even after they equalized we were determined to get at least a draw in the game but that couldn't happen.

"I really don't understand what is happening to us; we the defending champions of the league now fighting at the bottom of the table. Honestly, I'm confused [as to] why we could not get a draw.

"I'm sure we are going to leave the bottom position. We have three outstanding games to play and if we can get nine points from those games, which I think is possible, we will come up a little," he concluded.
