Coach Bonu Johnson and his impressive Banjul side has opened up a seven points gap at the summit of the premier league table on 27 points, as they beat relegation thrown Brikama United 2-nil in their own backyard to maintain their spectacular start to the campaign over the weekend.

Alagie Bah, who is currently GPA's top scorer fired the leaders ahead with a fine opener before Tony Mendy sealed the victory to help GPA set up a pace as the season entered the final round.

Their closest rivals Gamtel has once again missed a great chance to close the gap on the leaders, following a bitterly fought 1-1 draw against unconvincing Real De Banjul side.

The telecommunication boys as they are fondly called are seven points behind the leaders on 20 points leading to the second game of round two with a crucial game against Steve Biko, who were involved in another crucial game against bitter rivals Wallidan, at the time of going to press.

A win for the Bakau giant killers will see them reduce the ten-point gap on the leaders, which will move them to 20 points.

The ferry boys are proven unstoppable with some extraordinary performances against one of the hottest sides in the country's top-flight football.

This magnificent performance in recent times is likely to end their poor result, which saw them relegated to the Second Division in 2007\2008 season, as they remain on course to win the title.
