Gambian foreign-based players weekend roundup week 20 


By: Bubacarr Fallaboweh 

Match-winning goals from Foday Trawally, Ablie Jallow, and Gaira Joof made it three goals in three matches. 


Assan Ceesay, who started against Juventus and Hellas Veron, was named on the bench during Lecce’s Stadio Olimpico visit. Assan was introduced in the 68th minute. Lazio left it late to rescue a point at home to relegation-threatened Lecce on Friday evening. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s 94th-minute equalizer denied Marco Baroni’s side all three points. Lecce will now focus on next weekend’s relegation six-pointer against Spezia.  

 A wholly revamped Roma was held to a 0-0 draw by Thiago Motta’s Bologna, leaving them in sixth place and now six points adrift of the top four. Musa Barrow played the full throttle. 


Ablie Jallow’s lone goal in the 47th minute was enough to hand Metz all three points against GrenobleFoot. Saturday’s results have taken Metz to third on the log, one point behind Bordeaux, with three games to go. All of Ablie’s six league goals have been scored at the Saint-Symphorien. The former GenerationFoot winger was close to giving the host the lead in the 16 minutes, but his effort went wide. Saikou Touray replaced Abdoulie Sanyang in the 76th minute.  


VfL Bochum is back on track after a crucial home win over FC Augsburg. Antwi-Adjei and Losilla scored the goals, coupled with an own goal by the visitors. Thanks to the three points, Bochum is up to 15th spot on the table. Head coach Thomas Letsch made four changes in his starting lineup compared to the recent 2-0 away loss against Mönchengladbach. Saidy Janko found himself in the starting eleven for the first time since March, and he played the full throttle. 

Bakery Jatta returned after serving his suspension. As early as the fourth minute, Jatta went down the line on the right and delivered the ball perfectly for Glatzel, who could slot in from close range for a quick opener. In the end, HSV won their away match of the 32nd matchday 5:1 at SSV Jahn Regensburg, who are in danger of relegation.


Yusupha Njie was denied making the double against Gil Vincente. The Gambian came off the bench to play the last 15 minutes. Gil Vincente went on to win at home by 3-1.  


Alasana Manneh returned from injury to feature in Odense Bk 1-1 draw against Aalborg BK. Manneh, who missed the last three matches, was given a cameo role and played the last 17 minutes at Nature Energy Park. Musa Juwara was on the bench as Yankuba Minteh was serving a suspension.  


Foday Trawally came off the bench to be the hero for Tallinna Kalev as they beat Parnu Jk 2-0 in the Estonian Meistrilliga. Trawally opened the scores by netting a header before completing a brace by sending in a rebound. Saturday’s brace has taken his goal tally to 11 goals in 34 games in the Premium Liiga. 


Baboucarr Faal scored his second goal of the season in HNK Cibalia’s 3 -2 victory over HNK Orijent. Faal scored the equalizer in the 54th minute. 


Sheikh Omar Faye assisted Melo Ndiaye in Jaraaf’s 1-0 win over Linguere. 

GenerationFoot moved three points clear thanks to their 2–0 win over CNEPS. Goals from Pape Moussa and Abdou Diedhiou were enough to hand the academy boys their seventh consecutive win. Abdou Jarjou, the former Tallinding Utd winger, scored his first goal of the season.  


Gaira Joof scored in the 75th minute via the spot to cancel Diallo’s opener for Rahmatganj MFS. This was Gaira’s third goal in three matches for Fortis FC.
