Gunjur United opened the scores through winger Mbemba Fatty alias Andres Iniesta in the opening minute of the game from penalty spot after Simon Bass aka Super changa was brought down inside the eighteenth-yard box to give his side the lead.

Simon Bass aka Super Changa netted the second goal for Gunjur United before break to dash Greater Tomorrow’s hopes of coming back to their feet.

Midfielder Salifu Bapa Bojang sealed victory mid-away into the game from an astonishing long-range strike to earn Gunjur United a comfortable 3-0 over the Brikama-based outfit.
