The Lotto sponsored Brufut club, Brufut United leapfrogged Marimo to sit top of the second division league following a 3-1 win over PSV Wellingara on Tuesday, February 16, 2016 at the Box Bar Mini Stadium in Brikama.
The win which came four days after they lost to Interior saw Brufut United sit two points clear of second place Tallinding United who held Marimo to a one all draw a day earlier to gather 20points from ten matches. Marimo slipped to joint third position on 19points alongside Blue Stars who have a game in hand against Immigration.
PSV were under the heavy hand of Alagie Gibba who is becoming a regular goal scorer for Brufut. Alagie struck in the 51st minute after PSV conceded an own goal. The third goals came from Samsideen Njie in the 75th minute. That goal was Samsideen’s first for Brufut United in the league. PSV had to bit their lips when they conceded an own goal to open the floodgates for resolute and high firing Brufut United.
Buba K Jallow and his men are swimming dreamland like Leicester City are doing in the English Premier League. The secret behind Brufut United’s success can be attributed to the Lotto sponsorship. It could be recalled that about three-quarter of the team have been representing Brufut in the annual summer football jamboree, ‘Super Nawettan’ for the past three years.
