In the day’s second encounter, the only undefeated side in the league, LISCR FC, went into a goalless draw against 8th placed Watanga FC.
Both teams struggled in the first half with LISCR creating more chances, but did not find the back of the net.
Coach Tapha Manneh’s LISCR FC had an advantage over their opponents after Andrew Williams was red carded in the early minutes of the second half, but Watanga kept their opponents under pressure through counterattacks.
Coach Manneh made a change in his formation by using the 3-5-2 formation, contrary to his usual 4-4-2 formation.
The Gambian Coach in a post-match interview said he used the 3-5-2 formation to secure the three points, but it was unfortunate that one of his players, Njie Allen, who was making his debut for the club, could not adapt to the system, which led to his team finding it difficult to get additional goals.
The draw for the ‘Shipping Boys’ puts them four points behind the league leaders with 17 points out of nine matches.
At the North Star sports pitch in Mount Barclay, league leaders FC Fassel broke the undefeatable home record of Nimba United after they came from behind to defeat them 2-1, their first defeat on home ground.
The ‘Soccer Missionaries’ (FC Fassel) are now four points clear ahead of LISCR, with an outstanding game.
