The Coastal Town boys finished the match with ten men after defender Musa Ndong was sent off following his bitter argument with the central referee. 

The victory moved Gunjur United to fifth-place on the second division league table with 39 points after twenty-five league matches.

 Second Infantry Battalion remained bottom-place on the second division league with 18 points in twenty-five league matches.
