SC Gagnoa recorded a 1-0 home victory against ASEC Mimosas in their postponed Ligue 1 matchday 17 encounter on Saturday.
The result – a fourth win in five games – saw Sporting climb above their opponents of the day.
Haïdara Soualiho’s men are still trailing leaders Séwé Sport by four points, after the Portuaires’ 2-0 victory in Bouaké against AS Denguélé.
Tié Armand Boti Bi headed home a corner kick by Adama Sylla to put Gagnoa in the lead in their match.
The Yellow and Black entered the second half on a much more aggressive note, but still failed to find the back of ‘keeper Akissé Kouakou’s net.
That is a big blow for the ‘Mimos’, who conceded their second loss of the season after an 11-match undefeated series.
Coach Siaka Traoré’s players are now seven points away from Séwé Sport, and are left with no choice but to grab the full points against the leaders in their postponed matchday 18 clash this week.
