The capital outfit jump to the apex of the league table followed Tuesday’s victory over Gamtel.

Trailing by three points behind Tapha Manneh’s charges prior to the commencement of the game, Real needed to claim the staked points in their next schedule and when the moment came in the form of clash of league heavyweights against Gamtel, Real de Banjul pounced on the opponents without remorse swaging past their adversary with goals from Abdoulie Jallow and Famara Jarju.

Initially feared to have sustained an injury against Hawks in a game he was subbed sparking suggestion he might be doubtful for the next fixture, Famara returned to the fold unscathed and was the architect to thank for RDB’s opening goal.

Returning trialist Abdoulie Jallow added to Gamtel’s woes with an audacious last-gasp volley after Tapha Manneh’s troop equalized minutes from break. Real now lead by a slender margin on eleven points. Third-placed Bombada who are proving season surprise elements, thumped Bakau United by a goal to nil, in another tie.
