Action to resume in domestic league after political impasse

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Action is set to resume in the 2016-2017 Gambia Football Federation domestic league season, following the end of the country’s recent political impasse over the weekend.

Action will resume in the country’s second tier in the mid-week.

 League leaders Fortune FC will be hoping to keep their terrific run of form to open the gap on second place Wallidan, and also to increase their hopes of gaining promotion to the top flight next season.

Second spot Wallidan, on the other hand, will also be expecting to continue their excellent run of form to surpass Fortune FC in the second tier, and also fancy their chances of regaining promotion to the first division next season, following their demotion to the second tier after their dismal campaign in the top flight last season.

Bottom place Blue Star will work to win their games, so as to move away from red zone, and also boost their chances of staying in the second tier and avoid relegation to the third division.

Meanwhile, action will resume in the country’s top flight league season this weekend.

League leaders Real De Banjul, who won their six previous outings, will be belligerent to win their matches to open the gap, and also increase their chances of winning the league title.

The current league champions, Gambia Ports Authority, will be playing to win their upcoming league fixtures in order to keep their hopes of retaining their 2015-2016 domestic division one league crown.

Hawks and Brikama United are expecting to recover to maintain their league aspirations, after losing to league leaders Real De Banjul and Marimoo in their previous fixtures.

 Bottom-place Bombada and Bakau giant killers Steve Biko will be striving to win their games this weekend, so as to improve their position in the league after their recent slump in the top flight league season.
