The boys from the South will hope to deploy all their arsenals in a last minute effort to salvage their campaign no matter how unlikely that prospect may look. They are up against Bakau, whose modest three points in as many matches is causing anxiety among fans and officials alike. With a super Sunday clash in store for them against rival Brikama, Bakau cannot afford any further slip-ups and must take all three points today or crash out.
In another development, Sukuta which is in deep trouble of an early exit will meet a resurgent BEM at Serekunda West. Unless the Dembadou boys can beat the team from Niumi, they would almost certainly sink in this first hurdle.
Saturday is the climax in Group A as Manjai host Brufut in the final round of matches. It is a make-or-break affair for Brufut who must go for all three points as a draw may see them crash to one of their group opponent’s team’s superior goal difference. The same day Banjul will meet Serekunda Central. The City Boys will be at ease given the unfancied strength of Serekunda Central and its poor showing in the championship. But who says they are not capable of putting a spanner in the works of Banjul? That match will be played at the Serekunda East Park. Brikama who are already through to the last eight will fight for pride against Bakau on Sunday to wrap up the group stages.]]>
