Getting match statistics can be a daunting task in the Gambia’s football tournaments except goals, assists, corners, and maybe saves from goalkeepers.
The power rankings will look at the 10 most in-form teams in the first and second division leagues. The yardstick would be based on match results and the aforesaid statistics, especially when teams get neck-and-neck on points.
Wallidan FC had one in a lifetime pre-season ahead of the 2021-22 season. The team left Gambia for Saudi Arabia for its pre-season and are back with one mission to win the title. Out of 3 matches played though, Wallidan secured 5 points. They are yet to concede and scored only two goals.
Placed 5th in the second division, Tallinding United have 7 points out of a possible 9- scoring 5 goals and conceding 2.
Medical FC are 4th-placed in the second division, securing 7 points out of a possible 9. Like PSV Wellingara, Medical FC are yet to concede but managed to score 3 goals.
The Banjul based team is 4th in the first division with 7 points. Yet to concede too out of three matches played, Waa Banjul have scored 3 goals.
