Modou Barrow, Assan Ceesay assist clubs to victory

Friday, November 09, 2018

Gambian pair Modou Barrow and Assan Ceesay over the weekend assisted their European clubs Reading FC and FC Zurich to a win over Bristol City and FC Luzern respectively.

Modou Barrow marked his return in the Reading team with an assist in the club’s 3-2 home win over Bristol City at the Madejski Stadium.

The 26-year-old Gambian attacker was not included in Reading’s squad in previous three matches due to what manager Paul Clement described as ‘disciplinary issues’.

It is not the first time Barrow has been frozen out by Clement, as he was faced with a similar situation whilst the pair (Barrow and Clement) were at the then Premier League club Swansea City.

But the two seem to have resolved their differences after The Gambia international found his way back into the starting lineup when the team welcomed Bristol City at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday.

The two sides were heading for a 2-2 draw before Barrow stepped up to  assist in Leandro Bacuna’s winning goal to secure their second league victory in five matches.

It was Barrow’s seventh start this season for a Reading side that has struggled in large parts of this year’s league campaign and currently on the Championship relegation zone.

Elsewhere in Switzerland, striker Assan Ceesay also made an assist after helping FC Zürich to a 5-2 win at FC Luzern over the weekend.

The Scorpions forward jumped off the bench in the 84th minute to assist in the club’s fifth goal and send them to third on the Swiss Super League table.
