Blue boys Wallidan on Wednesday beat academy boys Samger 2-0 in the week-three fixtures to bounce back to their winning form in the 2013-2014 GFF division one league played at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium.

Wallidan and Samger both came into the game with zero point in two games after losing two consecutive games.

Wallidan lost to Bakau United 1-0 and Brikama United 3-1 in their two opening games and Samger also lost to Interior and Hawks on the same score-line.

It was not an easy game as both sides came all out for a victory to keep their title hopes alive and launched serious assaults at each other.

It was Wallidan who were absolutely clinical in front of goal and managed to notch in two excellent goals to claim the vital three points to keep their chances of staying in the premier league.

Samger fought hard for an equalizer and created some goal-scoring opportunities but were unable to break through Wallidan’s formidable defence thus the game ended 2-0 in favour of Wallidan.

League champions Steve Biko were held to a goalless draw by newly-promoted side Banjul United at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium, while Hawks beat embattled Gambia Ports Authority 1-0.

Elsewhere, Real De Banjul drew 1-1 with Gamtel in the other week-three fixtures played at the Banjul KG5 Mini Stadium on the same day.

Interior are currently leading the league table with 7 points in three games and are also unbeaten since the start of the league a fortnight ago.

Brikama United are 2nd position on the league table with 6 points in three games but are leading 3rd-place Hawks on goal differences.

Hawks are 3rd position on the league table with 6 points in three games. Gamtel, Real De Banjul and Banjul United are 4th, 5th and 6th positions respectively with 5 points each in three outings.

Wallidan are 9th position with 3 points in three games.

Reigning league champions Steve Biko are 3rd position from bottom with 2 points in three games.

Gambia Ports Authority are 2nd-place from bottom with a single point in three games, while Samger are still languishing at the bottom of the league table with zero point in three games.
