Steve Biko maintained their four-point lead at the top of the Gambian First Division League table despite a goalless stalemate with Real de Banjul in a game played Saturday at the Serekunda East Mini-Stadium.
Gamtel, who went into their week twelve fixture with Gambia Armed Forces on 16 points could have closed the gap on the leading two, but their 2-0 reverse to the Gambian Soldiers meant the difference between them and Biko has climbed to seven points.
A win over Real would have seen Steve Biko open up a seven-point lead at the top of the standings and they would be left disappointed that they could not secure the necessary three points having dominated proceedings in the second half with numerous goal scoring opportunities.
Speaking to reporters shortly after the game, head coach of Real de Banjul, Alagie Sarr, was pleased with the outcome of the result though he admitted that they came into the game with the intention of securing all three points that would have seen them close the gap on Biko to a single point.
On his part, Steve Biko's Abdoulie Bojang was happy that they were able to maintain their four-point lead over the defending champions. Despite the draw, he is still optimistic that they will secure their first ever league title come the end of the season.
Biko remained top with 23 points from 12 games but Brikama United could close the gap on them to three points with victory over Interior. The two sides were battling it out at the Box Bar Mini-Stadium at the time of going to press.
