Former Scorpions and Steve Biko midfield kingpin Abdoulie Bojang, has called on his players to be consistent if they are to be real title contenders in the race for the 2009\2010 (GFA) Division One League Championship title.

Steve Biko known as Bakau giant killers who have got-off to a promising start to the 12 club championship, with two impressive wins over Real De Banjul and Hawks, respectively has failed to maintain a perfect start to the season after suffering from a narrow 1-nil defeat to the current table toppers Gamtel to put an end to their two games unbeaten record.

The 2001 FA cup winners led a hard fought encounter and in the process went home with a deserved 3-2 victory over the defending champions Armed Forces, thanks to the efforts of Assan Jatta, who marked his return to the squad with a stunning performance.

The win was Biko's third in as many league matches, but the man at the helm of affairs Abdoulie Bojang, who spoke to this reporter in this interview at the team's training ground in Cape Point on Wednesday refused to be carried away by the team's recent performances.

The former Biko midfield hit man spoke on the need for the players to remain consistent in their quest to achieve their first league title in the history of the club.

"We started well with some collective display which earned us all the needed points in the last few matches, but we are aware of the challenges ahead of us and there is a need to remain  focused and take game after game seriously before thinking about winning the title at this stage of the league," the brilliant coach maintained.

Abdoulie Bojang, himself a former Biko player who was appointed to take charge of the Bakau giant killers in 2005\06 league season has on many occasions set his eyes on guiding the team to its first-ever GFA league title, but he could not manage to achieve the desired results.

His most outstanding performances since being promoted as Biko's Head Coach was in the 2008\09 GFA league season after helping his former club to the second position in the 12 club championship behind Armed Forces that won the league last season, which is the club's most outstanding performance to date.

Lie as many called him will lead Biko to another league fixture when they face bitter rivals Wallidan in the weekend encounter, hoping to re-adjust his chemistry in order to regain top spot on the league table once again.
