Despite trailing the league leaders Gambia Ports Authority by seven points in the Gambia Football Association (GFA) Division One League Championship, the Head Coach of the Bakau giant killers, Abdoulie Bojang, is of the view that the team still has a chance to overcome challenges, like the lack of poor finishing in a bid to claim the title they have never won.

Biko got-off to a perfect start to the campaign, but failed to replicate the form that saw them finished second last season.

But, according to Abdoulie Bojang, who was appointed to take charge of the Bakau giant killers in 2005, Biko are still a real title contenders.

Lie as he is widely known added "Our target in the first round was to collect 20 points, but they only managed to snatch 17 points instead."

Despite failing to meet their target in the first round the former Gambia Senior National team midfield maestro remains confident that Biko has what it takes to put up a real fight in their quest to achieve the desired results.

"If you look at the number of goals we conceded, as well as the goals we scored this season, compared to last year, you would realise that there is a lot of improvement in that area," he explained.

Bojang is however confident that the team will work hard on some of the areas so as to score as many goals as possible.

"We have good scorers but they are not scoring at the moment, but hopefully we will work hard on the scoring area when we resume training on Monday ahead of the second round," Bojang said in an interview on Tuesday.

Bojang, who led Biko to four wins, five draws, two loose, with a total of 17 points in 11 league matches spent the last league game on the sidelined, due to illnee as the Bakau giant killers held strugglers Brikama United to a bitterly fought goalless draw at the Box Bar Mini-stadium on Sunday under the guidance of the Assistant Coach Borris Jammeh.
