Tamale Utrecht Football Academy team manager, Alhassan Habib has lamented his team's profligacy after a 1-1 draw to Amajande on Sunday.

The hosts dominated the first half at the Kasalgu Academy Park but were unable to beat the new entrants, before being undone by a fortuitous equalizer after striker Micheal Japaa had put TUFA in front on the 25th minute.

And Habib, whose team sit 5th  in the GN Bank Division One League after five matches, felt his side had failed to capitalize on the chance to beat the Bole based side.

"It was a good opportunity where we could have got something," he told tufaghanafc.com afterwards.

"We dictated the whole of the first half, but we should have got the goal. Credit to Amajande, they showed their quality in the second half.

"To concede the goal we did was very hard on the players. Against these teams, you have to take that opportunity and get that goal or two.

He continued: "Ultimately, we deserved at least the three from the game. The commitment and effort from my players was fantastic.

"If we play like we did in the first half, we will be able to get lots more points in the games to come."

Tamale Utrecht will face city rivals RTU next week as they continue their push for a top four spot and Habib believes this would be the toughest of matches as the home side have lost their last two away games.
