King Faisal's coach Cobblah laments wastefulness in goalless draw with Gold Stars

Published on: 20 March 2023

King Faisal's coach, Jimmy Cobblah, expressed his profound disappointment after his team's goalless draw against Gold Stars on Monday, March 20, 2023, in Week 22 of the Premier League.

Cobblah revealed that he was "more than frustrated" with his team's inability to capitalize on their chances during the game.

He lauded Gold Stars for their clinical finishing, admitting that sometimes a team needs the kind of goal-scoring prowess that Gold Stars displayed.

"We created all the chances but were so wasteful in front of goal. You need a team like Gold Stars to put the ball in the net for you," Cobblah lamented.

Despite having numerous opportunities to score, King Faisal's poor finishing resulted in a disappointing draw that sends them into the drop zone.

"In the first half, we should have buried them, in the second half, the same," Cobblah said. "The only chance they (Gold Stars) got was what hit the bar. That is the only chance they got.

"And when you play well against a very experienced and organized team like Gold Stars, create chances and you cannot score, it is frustrating."
