The cellular boys moved into second-round fixtures brimming with vigour and hunger to achieve better results in order to stay ahead of their fellow strugglers Tallinding United.
The two teams played each other last Saturday at the Father Gough Sport Complex in Mangai with both teams putting up strong efforts to gain better standing and avoid the risk of relegation to the lower division.
Africell's ace striker Omar Jammeh in the 65th minute headed a goal from a point blank range, thus adding more salt to the injuries of the First Division returnees as the goal that proved to be the game winner vitiated Tallinding United chances to nudge their opponent at the bottom rock of the table.
In the 19th minute Omar Ndong of Tallinding United made skill full moves in the mid-field before striking a thunder that caused a lot of trouble for Africell goalkeeper who parried the ball to corner.
Africell made a two-penalty appeal in either half of the game but were turned down by referee Papa Gassama.
Substitute Saihou Badgie alias Tamba gave his team Africell more strength following a solo boost at the right flank with his quick running to open up space and swung crosses that put the opponent defence and goal man hot on their heel.
Wallidan only managed a 1-1 draw with arch rivals Real de Banjul at Brikama.
Earlier on Friday, Hawks drew 2-2 with Brikama United. Alieu Jagne and Ousman Jatta scored for Hawks. Modou Jallow and substitute Alagie Bah recorded their names in the score sheets for Brikama
