CLARENDON, Jamaica — Coach Geoffrey Maxwell refused to blame complacency for Humble Lion's 2-0 defeat to August Town in Sunday's Red Stripe Premier League encounter at the Effortville Community Centre.
Goals from Larone Russell and Kevin 'Pele' Wilson, either side of half-time handed Humble Lion their second defeat in six games.
But Maxwell said his players were by no means in a relaxed mood because they have been sitting at the top of the table since the start of the season.
"No, I don't think we were complacent," he said. "I honestly felt we trained well (in the) week and thought we would have won the game. We got the opportunities to win, but just didn't score them."
The defeat, which was their second at home, means Humble Lion were replaced at the summit by Montego Bay United, who scored a come-from-behind 2-1 win at Arnett Gardens.
While Maxwell thinks there is enough time to get back on track, he warned that performances like this will not get them far.
"It is early days," said Maxwell, "but if you come and fool around you are going to be punished. We got seven tap-in goals, not shots, and we didn't put away any, so we paid the price."
"Give credit to August Town," he added. "I thought they played well. They got three chances and scored two. We scored none. That's what football is about."
MAXWELL... we got the opportunities to win, but just
didn't score them
