LOBATSE: Township Rollers’ head coach, Sergio Traquil feels his side was cheated after Gaborone Derby loss against nemesis, Gaborone United (GU).

The Blues suffered a 2-0 defeat against the Reds in a Botswana Premier League match played at the Lobatse Sports Complex on Saturday afternoon. Despite the hype prior to the clash, the derby failed to live up to expectations as far as attendance was concerned.

However, on the field of play, the goal posts were rattled four times as GU bagged the bragging rights with two goals in the second half. The tie ended with Rollers a man down after Thabo Babutsi was given a red card in the second half on his first game between the two giants.
