The away game is crucial for the Slovakian champions who have open up a six-point lead at the top of the table. Opponents Tatran Presov will be using home support to challenge the in-form Zilina.

Gambian forward Ceesay is expected to make his 15th appearance this season today and has so far netted two goals. He is part of the team's 23 man roster for the spring season of the top football competition.

Zilina has all it takes to defend the title, according to team coach Pavel Hapal on www.mskzilina.sk.  The players completed three winter camps playing twelve preparatory matches with the balance of 8 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses.

"For the first time during my coaching career, we have been doing the three winter gatherings with particular attention focused on the fitness page. In Dubai, we played a quality tournament, where we had to concentrate on the gaming sites which are not our clubs in this period used to. But I think that hurt us, the players played very good matches and we should not forget the victory over Shakhtar Donetsk, has virtually the same team won last week in the Champions League against AS Roma," said Pavel Hapal .


In the Belgian Second division, Mustapha Jarju's RAEC Mons will be on the road to meet mid-table opponents Vise on Sunday in week 26 matches. Mons are still hanging on 3rd place with 44 points 13 points behind leaders Lommels United.

Jarju is so far the team’s top scorer after netting 13 goals in 23 matches.

The 24-year-old who is enjoying a scintillating run of form with Mons in Belgium is yet to replicate the same level of performance at home with the Gambia senior national team where he steers as one of the most valuable footballers over the years.
