Relegated side Wallidan on Wednesday beat Kexx 1-0 in the week-six fixtures played at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium to close gap on the 2016-2017 Gambia Football Federation second division league leaders Red Hawks to just two points.

The blue boys are mid-table in the second tier prior to their slender win over the Wellingara-based outfit in their week-six fixtures at the West Coast Region biggest football arena.

Wallidan are now among the teams challenging for promotion to the top flight next season with 10 points in six league matches after edging past Kexx in the mid-week fixtures.

Interior beat Waa Banjul on the same score-line at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium to maintain their first division promotion chances alive.

Elsewhere, Banjul United lost to Bakau United 2-1 at the Banjul KG5 Mini Stadium on the same day to keep their top flight promotion hopes alive.
