“I think we played well on Sunday. For most parts of the match, we were in the match and made life extremely difficult for our opponents.

“However, we lost because of a lack of concentration in the midfield after we equalized. We have learned a lot from today; remember some of our players are still young. I believe we will do better on Sunday,” Deutsch told

Looking ahead to next Sunday’s Abia Derby, Deutsch vowed to exact revenge, insisting that nothing short of victory will be acceptable for the team.
