161

By Sulayman Bah Gambia striker Ousman Jallow is out on the pitch fringes nursing anOusman Jallow injury, Foroyaa Sport can report. The attacker is sidelined by a hamstring and was not part of his club HJK Helsinki’s latest 3-0 trouncing of Jaro.26-year-old former Wallidan man sustained the injury in the slender win over newly promoted KTP , a game he climbed off the substitutes’ bench as a 65th minute sub before hobbling off grimacing sheer agony. The timing of the injury comes at a worst possible time for a forward who’d played just thirty-eight minutes in three matches. The extent of the abrasion is scheduled to be determined this week. The Finnish league title holders as a result of the setback are left with just two established strikers including Demba Savage, and, are considering, should the Gambian stay longer in the periphery, recruit a new goal-poacher to fill the void. Should against expectations, the ex-U-17 ace stays out longer, it will seriously hamper Gambia’s Afcon 2017 campaign to begin next month with Momodou Ceesay also professionally inactive.]]>
