Nurudeen Amadu, head coach of King Faisal Football Club has attributed his team’s recent poor run of form to fatigue.
The Kunasi based side suffered their second successive defeat in two weeks when they lost 2-0 to Karela United at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Friday.
The latest setback brings to four, the number of defeats King Faisal has suffered in thirteen matches played in the Ghana Premier League.
Speaking to the media after the loss on Friday, Nurudeen Amadu disclosed that his charges are beginning to tire, expressing the need to strengthen his squad to ease the pressure.
“We were not tactically good enough, I think that we have lost some power, be that fatigue is setting in, we need to look at all those factors.
“But I think that Karela were better. They stopped us from playing our normal game and they were having more men behind the ball, they utilized their chances.
“We created many chances but we squandered them and so it’s a very worrying worrying issue but that is football and we have to move on.
“These two defeats, it has created some grief in our midst but we will go back and then resolve it and then get going,” Ahmed Nurudeen said.
“I think that fatigue is setting on our boys and I think we need to beef up the team since we have the open [transfer] window.
“So we need to bring some players to beef up the team. I can see that there is fatigue,” he added.
The loss to Karela United sinks King Faisal into 4th on the league log with 23 points, level with Medeama SC.
The early seaosn leaders are now four points behind city rivals Asante Kotoko who remain top of the league deapite drawing at Berekum Chelsea at the Golden City Park on Saturday.
