"The match was a great one. Gombe United gave us a very good fight and deserved to win," Mohammed told Goal .
"We also played well but had many chances to score we failed to convert them. It was a game shouldn't have lost but we were just wasteful.
"I give kudos to the match officials. The officiating throughout the match was fair and commendable."
On their chances to finish high at the end of the season, Mohammed says: "Well, as a team, we must keep fighting till the last game.
"We still have four matches to play and I believe we can finish very high, possibly still make the top three," he concluded.
