All eyes are set on the 2017 Fibank Gambia Limited-sponsored Super Nawettan rescheduled semifinal clash between Sukuta and defending champions Gunjur set for today, Wednesday 1 November 2017, at the Independence Stadium in Bakau at 4pm.

The match was called off after the penalty shootout failed to produce a winner in the semifinal clash played on Sunday, following their goalless draw in the regulation time.

The Sukutarians will eye for revenge to sail to the final for the first time since 2015, after losing to Gunjur on penalties in the 2016 Super Nawettan semifinal.

The defending champions Gunjur will be keen on beating Sukuta for the second time in the semifinal to progress to the final, after defeating the Sukutarians in the 2016 Super Nawettan semifinal.

Elsewhere, BEM on Monday beat Serrekunda East 1-0, in the other semifinal played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau to advance to the Super Nawettan final for the first time in their history since their inclusion in the country’s biggest community football fiesta in 2012.
