London APSA boss Zakir Hussain bemoaned their sloppiness as they blew chances of a third consecutive win with a 2-1 home defeat against Haringey & Waltham Development.

A dominant spell in the opening stages went unrewarded, with a goal disallowed and they were made to pay on two occasions as sloppy defending saw Levi Mathurine and Brad Falco net for Haringey.


APSA had levelled in the second half through Chike Natunya, who was making his debut off the bench.

“I am very disappointed, we had a good opportunity to take all three points and let it slip after some poor defending for both goals.

We simply fell asleep for both goals,” said Hussain.

Low on numbers for tonight’s (Wednesday’s) Essex Senior Cup second round tie at Stanway Rovers, Hussain is targeting a big response from his side on Saturday when they face a Bethnal Green United side currently second in the league.

“We have enough experience and quality in our side to unsettle them on Saturday.”
