“The way and manner the officials handled this game was not encouraging,” fumed former Wikki Tourists coach Maikaba.

“I don’t want to talk about it because we (the coaches) would be discouraged if officials continue in this manner.”

Maikaba told SCORENigeria Nasarawa United were desperate for the maximum points.

“Nasarawa United needed these points desperately and we also needed it, but the officials did not allow us to prove ourselves,” Maikaba blasted.
