Backlash awaits Bees from Juth

Head coach of Nigeria National League (NNL) side, Juth FC, Audu Isa Pele, has told supersport.com that Ranchers Bees would have to face the consequence of their Matchday 10 loss at Spotlight FC.

Both teams will clash in the NNL Matchday 11 fixture on Saturday at the Ranchers Bees Stadium, Kaduna.

Juth FC were unhappy with the level of officiating during their Matchday 10 encounter which they lost 0-1 to Spotlight FC in Katsina.

Pele, who was last season the assistant coach of Jigawa Golden Stars expressed his grievances to supersport.com that the centre referee, Linus Uche masterminded their defeat to Spotlight FC, claiming that the goal scored by their foes was not a legitimate goal.

“The officiating of our last game was the worst I have ever seen since I started my coaching career, and I would want those in charge to act speedily because the referee that was in charge of that game was terrible.

“The ball never crossed the goal line, but to our surprise the referee blew that it was a clean goal.

“How would you want a player to exhibit his talent when a referee would not allow him to play? And how would you rate the performance of a referee who gave three yellow cards to a player in a single match before being sent off?" Pele queried angrily.

“Biased and poor officiating is the problem we are facing in the National League and something must be done fast, because we won't tolerate such again in our subsequent away games."

Juth FC currently occupy 10th position on the National League Division A standings on 13 points.
