Gambia Ports Authority defeated Gambia Armed Forces 1-0 in their re-scheduled fixtures played at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium on Tuesday. The victory lifts them two places above relegation zone in the 2016-2017 Gambia Football Federation domestic division one league.

The ferry boys were occupying second-place from bottom in the country’s top flight prior to their re-scheduled fixture against the Soldiers.

Coach Alagie Sarr and his Gambia Ports Authority charges knew that a defeat against Gambia Armed Forces would dash their chances of staying in the top flight next season. They managed to notch up one goal to bag the victory and move two places above safety with 18 points from 16 league matches.

Gambia Armed Forces are still leading the league with 38 points from 18 league matches despite their 1-0 defeat to Gambia Ports Authority.
