Peter Bonu Johnson, the Head Coach of the in-form Gambia Ports Authority team insisted that he and his impressive GPA side do not want to be too much ambitious of winning the title, despite setting up a 3 points gap at the summit of the league table in a stunning fashion as the first round of the GFA League Championship came to an end over the weekend.

The ferry boys as they are commonly called whose poor performances saw them dropped to the Second Division Two seasons ago have re-established themselves to put in a respective performance as they secured the top spot with an impressive number of 24 points in 11 possible league matches.

The Banjul club, according to Peter Bonu Johnson, the former Gambia National U-20 team coach will continue with the objective of maintaining a place in the country's top flight football and whatever comes out of it would serve as a bonus for the GPA.

Bonu, who was full of praises for his determined and energetic side that enjoyed a 2-1 win over bottom place Sea View at the Independence Stadium in Bakau on Saturday to maintain their spectacular start to the 12-club Championship added that "we treated ourselves as underdogs but we work hard as a team and more importantly, the players listened to instruction which help us achieved the desired results."

He used the platform to appeal to his players to remain focused in their quest to achieve their objective, but he did not rule out the Gambia Ports Authority?s possibility to claim the title.
