TAFC's coach Raju Tamang said they were able to convert scoring opportunities which helped their cause. "The win was also relatively easy. Biratnagar had played a good game in their earlier match but could not repeat that today," said Tamang.

Biratnagar's coach Paras Chaudhary they were not expecting to concede so many goals against the departmental side. "Our first half was not so good. Had we played the full match like the second half, there would not be so many goals," said Chaudhary.

The win narrows TAFC's gap to leaders Nepal Armed Police Force Club (APF) to two points. TAFC have 22 points to APF's 24 though the latter have a game in hand. Biratnagar lie fifth on the table.
