Gamtel have maintained their lead at the top of the league table after beating Bombada 2-1 in the ongoing First Eco sponsored GFF league.
Real de Banjul caught up with Gamtel on thirty-one points after
shocking capital nemesis Hawks courtesy of a Famara Jarju’s free-kick who saw his season goal tally soar to five. The league champions sharing of the top spot had occurred prior to Gamtel’s match againstBombada.
But the outcome of results on Monday evening propelled the telecom giants
to the top, three points ahead of Real who now occupy second place on 31
Tapha Manneh’s Gamtel are ardent on bringing a successful end to their
long-standing league trophy drought this campaign and must win the rest of
the remaining five matches to stand a chance with Real on a game in
They are already on road to attaining the feat but with Real one game
less than rest of the division other title contenders, fans could well
be in for a dramatic treat on the final day of the league.
Elsewhere Serrekunda United bettered their hopes of avoiding the drop
by fending off Interior whom they held to a goalless draw at the
Serrekunda East mini-stadium.
Wallidan, finally, picked all points a breezing past Armed Forces on a 1-0 score.
Meanwhile Brikama United have resumed league action after the club’s
team bus was involved in an accident last week.
The team was heading for a scheduled domestic league match when it
collided into a car along the Jimpex road. There were no deaths but
slight injuries to players with the team bus-driver the only one to
have been hospitalised before being later released.
Players, following the accident, were routinely subjected to medical
check up before being let go to reunite with their various families.
However, on the back of that road incident, Brikama United players
have resumed league action adding mystery to Bakau United championship
woes with two goals from Sainey Bojang and play-maker Bully Drammeh
enough to inflict damage on the red half of Bakau, in Brikama.
The win intensified the race for the title as United close the gap to
league leaders Gamtel to three points as of Sunday.
