Brikama United have moved three points clear at the top of the 2010-11 Gambia Football Association (GFA) division one league championship after a hard-fought 1-0 win over struggling side Interior in the week six fixtures at the Serrekunda East Mini-stadium on Saturday.

Interior, who lost two games in a row, came into the game with the intention of collecting the maximum points and both launched series assaults in front of each other's goal-mouth but the first half failed to produce a goal.

Upon resumption of the game, Brikama United came all out and mounted heavy pressure on Interior’s defence line and created numerous goal-scoring opportunities and their efforts paid dividend in the dying minute when striker Foday Trawally launched a brilliant strike that proved to be the winning goal.

Brikama United are now leading the league standing with 14 points in six games, while Interior lie second from bottom with only 3 points in six games.

Bakau United were held to a goalless draw by the newly promoted side Young Africans at the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai Kunda on the same day.

Bakau United are 2nd position on the league standings with 11 points in six games, while Young Africans are 5th position on the table with 8 points in six games.

The current league champions, GPA, were also held to a goalless draw by Samger in the other week six fixtures at the Serrekunda West Mini-stadium.

GPA are now 6th position on the league standings with 7 points in six games, while Samger are 9th position on the league table with 6 points in six games.
