Banjul United has avoided relegation after a one all draw with title contenders, Gambia Armed Forces on Wednesday.

In a match held at the Independence Stadium, GAF’s lead came in the 14th minute through a free-kick while the Banjulians equalized three minutes later. Despite the numerous chances created, the Banjulians were able to humble the military outfit’s attacking line to secure a needed one point to avoid relegation.

Speaking to the Banjul Assistant Coach, he said his tactic was to avoid conceding a goal from GAF.

‘We only need a point to ensure our stay in the League. I told my boys after we had equalized them to stay focus and avoid conceding anymore goals. That is what they have done and GAF despite their numerous chances, they couldn’t score us anymore goals,’ he said.
