Gunjur United last Thursday thumped Brufut United by 4-2 in the week-twelve fixture of the 2018-2019 Gambia Football Federation (GFF) second division league to close gap on league leaders Sporting Real to just two points.

Played at the Brikama Box Bar mini stadium, Gunjur were with five points behind Real De Banjul feeder team in the second tier table before locking horns with the Brufut-based team, who lost to Immigration 2-1 in their previous league encounter.

They snatched the vital three points to close gap on league leaders Sporting Real to two points thanks to goals from 2016 super nawettan best player Salifu Bojang alias Bapa, Bubacarr Demba alias Ozil and youngster Bakary Touray alias Nfabou, through braces.

Brufut responded for an equaliser and managed to pull back two goals, which eventually proved to be a consolation goal for them.

Second-spot Waa Banjul beat Second Infantry Battalion 1-0 at the Banjul KG5 Mini Stadium while Latrikunda United defeated league leaders Sporting Real on the same scoreline at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium.

Sporting Real has 24 points in twelve league matches and Waa Banjul with 23 points after twelve league matches. Gunjur United gripped 22 points after twelve league matches and Brufut United with 14 points in twelve league matches while Second Infantry Battalion collects 10 points after twelve league matches.
