Steve Biko 1st Division return aspiration suffers upset

Tuesday, January 22, 2019

Steve Biko’s first division return aspirations have suffered another upset after their 2-0 defeat to second division league leaders Sporting Real at the Banjul KG5 Mini Stadium on Friday.

The Bakau giant killers are sitting fourth in the second tier with 9 points before facing Real De Banjul feeder team, who are topping the standings with 16 points.

They were hoping to flog Sporting Real to increase their hopes of returning to the country’s premier league next season following their demotion to the second division last season but their quest for maximum points failed to materialise.

Sporting Real scored two goals in the game without Steve Biko replying to salvage their lead in the summit with 19 points in seven league matches. Steve Biko now dropped to fifth in the second tier with 9 points after seven league matches.
