Gambian striker Yankuba Jarju scored his side’s (Cholet) only goal during a 4-1 home defeat to Bastia in their week 31 fixture of the French National 1 (third division league) played at the Stade Pierre Blouen on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old scored his side only goal in the 55th minute of the game when his team was two nil down.

The league leaders took the lead through Antony Robic in the 33rd minute before Sebastian Da Silva’s brace in the 47th and 81st minutes and Chaouki Ben Saada’s 84th minute goal secured Bastia a comfortable win.
