BY: GFF Media

Looking doomed as they head into Week 17 of the Gambia’s First Division league, PSV Wellingara’s slim quest for survival received a welcome boost on Friday when they stunned title hopefuls Brikama United with a 1-0 win at the Box Bar mini stadium.

For the first time in their history, the Wellingara-based side’s points in the top flight reached double figures with the three points taking the maiden first division campaigners to 11 points, five adrift of safety with night matches remaining.

It was only the second win for PSV and they would be hoping that Friday’s victory would spark the beginning of a positive sequence of results in their desperate fight to retain their top flight status.

Wallidan meanwhile made it two wins on the bounce following a slender 2-1 defeat of city rivals Gambia Ports Authority at the KG5 mini stadium in Banjul.

The Blues have scooped 25 points, four adrift of new leaders Gambia Armed Forces who defeated reigning champions Gamtel 2-0 at the Box Bar in Brikama.

Real de Banjul are joint second with Brikama United on 28 points. The Whites defeated Banjul United 1-0 in a derby played at the KG5.

Bakau Katchikally Milan saw off the challenge from Marimoo 1-0, in a match involving newly promoted sides at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.

Hawks defeated Fortune 1-0 while relegation candidates Tallinding United and Samger played out a 1-1 stalemate.
