Tallinding United came from a goal down to secure a 1-1 draw against Interior FC in a well fought football match played at the Serrekunda East Mini-Stadium recently.

The eight -team Pre-season tournament is organised by Serrekunda East Sports Development Organisation (SESDO).

Both sides went into the game with high hopes of winning but could only create few scoring chances resulting in a goalless draw at half time.

Assan Jammeh of Tallinding United had a wonderful opportunity in the 19th minute of the game but his effort went wide.

Famara Manneh of Interior FC also had a chance to put his name on the score sheet for Interior in the 32nd minute but his effort also went straight into the hands of goalkeeper Ebrima Jadama resulting in a goalless first half.

Interior FC took the lead with only a minute on the clock upon resumption through Kebba Kebbeh when he netted from a brilliant strike just at the edge of the eighteen-yard box.

Tallinding United fought back and created a couple of chances and their struggle was finally rewarded with an equalizer through substitute Omar Jobe, alias Drogba, who capitalised on a defensive blunder to secure a 1-1 draw for the Tallinding giants.

Tallinding United are a goal different ahead of Interior with both of them on five points.
