Kenyan international midfielder McDonald Mariga was once again left on the bench as his Italian Serie B side US Latina fell short, losing 0 – 3 to ten – man Cesena on Saturday 26 March at the Dino Manuzzi Stadium.
The midfielder has nine appearances for the team this season but continued to struggle for game time under new coach Carmine Gautieri, the man who took over from the manager who signed Mariga, Mario Somma.
Camillo Ciano broke the deadlock on the fifth minute and he completed his brace on the 70th minute from the penalty spot, three minutes later, Antonino Ragusa scored the third.
The hosts Cesena were reduced to ten men after Francesco Renzetti was given his matching orders on the 52nd minute for a second bookable offence.
Latina are ranked 16th on the 22-team table with 36 points from 33 games. They host Avellino in their next match on Saturday 2 April.
