Real de Banjul raced into an early lead two goals up before hosts and title defenders Brikama United fought back to equalise 2-2 in a fixture witnessing four goals.
And harping on the sidelines of the fixture before a somewhat impressive turnout, Modou Lamin Nyassi said: ‘We did not deserve losing the match as the boys worked hard to come back and fight back. It was a tough game as Real are a solid team.’
‘Everyone did well in the first half but the goal that was conceded wasn’t that good. We would love to collect the maximum points but collecting a point against the champion isn’t bad either,’ Ebou Jarra, in his first season as Real de Banjul’s coach having crossed the divide from Armed Forces, said.
