Real de Banjul FC entered the top four places on the domestic First Division League table following a 1-0 defeat of Bombada Football Club on Sunday. They were joined in the top four by Brikama United, who drew with Hawks.
Real de Banjul secured the narrow win with the game’s only goal scored by Haruna Jabang from the penalty spot. With the win, Real is fourth on the 12-team table with 19 points from 13 games, a solitary point adrift of Brikama United in third.
Bombada, who have won only one game so far this season, are currently sitting in the 10th position with 10 points, leaving them desperate for points in an attempt to avoid the drop. Hawks is in eighth with 16 points.
In the third game of Sunday, Samger FC returned to winning ways with a 2-1 defeat of basement side Banjul United at the KG5 Mini-Stadium in Banjul. Samger, unbeaten in their opening nine games of the season, suffered back-to-back defeat to Hawks, GPA and Gamtel.
