Can Brufut stop Kombo East?
…..Crackers in Serekunda derby..
The first batch of quarter finals in the Africell sponsored Super Nawettan opens tomorrow at Brikama and Manjai football parks.
In Brikama, surprise package Kombo East, who must have surprised even themselves to reach the last eight will hope to push their fairy tale story to another notch when they meet Brufut.
Having completed an impressive group stage, Kombo East have momentum and vigor to rely on. However resurgent Brufut has reason to believe they could repeat their 2012 feat when they made a dramatic debut reaching the semi finals. Even after being stripped off their first three points for using an ineligible player against Sanyang, Brufut made two successful victories to secure their ticket to the quarter finals. Can they reach their second semis?
All hell breaks loose the same night Saturday as Serekunda East meets neighbours West at Manjai in a rivalry that dates back over four decades .History however favours Serekunda East but West have a knack for pulling themselves together to go for the kill in the last minute.
Bakau Versus Manjai=West Park
BEM versus Brikama…East Park
