Simba SC head coach Sven Vandenbroeck has called on their fans to continue supporting the club, assuring them that they will bounce back from the 1-0 derby defeat to rivals Yanga on Sunday.
Ghanaian stars Bernard Morrison bagged the solitary goal of the game in the penultimate moments of the opening half to hand Yanga the much-needed bragging rights in the Kariakor derby, as the defending champions suffered their third loss of the campaign.
“We are all disappointed with the outcome but that does not mean my boys did not put it all during the match. We had chances to score but unfortunately, we could not turn them into goals. Let me assure our fans that we will get back on the track quickly to keep moving forward,” Vandenbroeck is quoted by Daily News.
Despite the painful defeat Simba are still atop the 20-member Vodacom Premier League table with 68 points, 27 rounds into the season and look on course for another league title on the bounce.
The Belgian says the difference on the day was the free-kick which separated the two sides.
Vandenbroeck has called on his troops to move on from the defeat and step up to hand him his first silverware at the Wekundu wa Msimbazi.
Yanga who recorded their 14th win of the season lie third on 50 points.
