Jawara and Remy down stubborn Tallinding
New recruits Alhagie Jawara and Remy Mendy were both directly involved as Real De Banjul beat Tallinding United 2-0 to secure the club’s second win of the season.
The Whites made two changes to the team that started against Banjul Utd with former Tallinding captain Babou Cham and Saikou Mansally coming in for Kajally Drammeh and Muhamed Sanneh.
The host started the better side and nearly had their noises in front inside the opening sixty seconds.
A long ball over the top towards the Real area was not dealt with by Mansally but the Tallinding forward failed to punish the defence.
On the other end Bubacarr Tambedou who’s starting his second game came close twice when Mansally curled an inviting cross across goal but the youngster failed to guide his first time shot home.
Tambedou was again found by the tireless Ebrima Sidibeh again he tried to find a teammate when the goal was at his mercy as the first period ended goalless.
Real got the second half under way and looked a more determined side ready to take control and get all three points.
Remy Mendy raced through the heart of the Tallinding defence beating the rushing keeper before being fouled by a recovering defender.
Alhagie Jawara stepped up to dispatch the spot kick and hand Real De Banjul and deserved lead after 55 minutes.
The duo combined for the second goal when Jawara’s well strucked free kick just inside the Tallinding area landed on Remy’s head and went in off the crossbar before nestling in to make it 2-0 with time running out.
Abdoulie Kah missed a sitter before Remy made it two when he was played in by Pa Modou Sohna but he failed to hit the target.
