Second-place occupant Real De Banjul on Saturday beat academy boys Samger by a goal to nil in a keenly-contested GFA division one league encounter played at the Serrekunda East Mini-stadium.

Substitute Baboucarr Sanyang scored the only goal of the game for Real De Banjul in the 87th minute of the game from a classic header.

Real De Banjul have now collected 23 points in thirteen games while Samger have also collected 16 points in thirteen encounters.

Speaking to reporters shortly after the game, Alagie Sarr, head coach of Real De Banjul FC, said they were well prepared for the game as their record against Samger was "very bad".

"We capitalised on their weakness in the midfield and punished them," Coach Sarr said.

He added: "We prepare for every game because we don't want to loose a game in the second round of the league."

The Real De Banjul coach said he was very proud of his players for putting up a very good fight against Samger.

Sarr, who switched to Real from Seaview recently, noted further: "It was a very tough game because Samger is a very good team that has been playing together for a number of years."

He said of the next encounter: "We will respect Bakau United in our next game but will prepare well for them because we are going for the maximum three points in every of our game in the second round."

In his comments, Samger's head coach Jaine Joof said: "It was a disappointing game."

His boys did not play to expectation, Joof noted: "The boys were too ambitious while Real De Banjul came into the game with the ambition of getting the maximum points, which they did."

The disappointed Samger coach consoled himself: "Losing today is not the end of our title hunt; we will still go back and prepare well for our games ahead."
