Silver Strikers’ Assistant Coach, Lovemore Fazili, has admitted that, despite defeating Max Bullets 1-0 at Silver Stadium on Saturday, his charges struggled.
“I think the boys underrated Max Bullets. But I am happy because we have progressed to the next round. We will work hard to reach the final of this competition,” Fazili said in a post-match interview.
Max Bullets Coach, Aubrey Nankhuni, refused to speak to the press again.
