As GPA Extend Lead
The in-form Gambia Ports Authority continues to produce an impressive performances as they came from behind to beat bottom place Sea View 2-1 to extend their lead at the top of the GFA Division One league table at the Independence Stadium in Bakau on Saturday.
Coach Alagie Sarr, who is still enduring a miserable start to the season with the hotel club took an early lead when Modou Njie Joof capitalised on a terrible goal-keeping error to give his side a 10th minute opener.
Sea View bagan the game looking very much promising, but their hope of maintaining a one goal lead suffered a massive set back as they conceded two brilliant goals one in each half against the mighty GPA side, who has not conceded a defeat in 9 matches.
Striker Hagi Tunkara, who has an outstanding put the ferry boys back into an exciting encounter when he fired home from a powerful header after a wonderful cross by team-mate in the 26th minute.
It was a moment of brilliance from Ousman Saho who grabbed the winner with only one minute to stoppage time to help GPA finish the first round with 3 points’ advantage on top of the table.
The youngster who has found his playing opportunities very limited this season could give Bonu an option as to whether he will still give Saho as much playing time as possible, as a result of his magnificent performance in such a crucial moment of the domestic league competition.
The win saw GPA wrap-up the first round on a high spirit going into the second round with something to be optimistic about, while Sea View’s coach position as the club’s boss continued to come under heavy criticism.
Elsewhere on Saturday, Gamtel continued to drop points as they played a 1-1 draw against Interiro, at the Serrekunda West Mini-stadium, while Real De Banjul whose embarrassing performance in the league is showing no sigh of abating suffered a 2-nil defeat against Samger at the Brikama Box Bar Mini-stadium.
