Sunday’s games will feature Wallidan and Africell at the Serrekunda West Mini-stadium.

The blue boy are occupying 3rd place on 10 points out of possible five matches while Africell could only manage to collect 3 points in five league matches.

Second from bottom Steve Biko, who recorded three draws with three points in five games, will battle it out with 9th place holder Real de Banjul at the Banjul KG5 Mini-stadium.

Real, on the other hand, managed to secure five points in five league games.

Elsewhere, Armed Forces and FA Cup winners Gamtel will meet on Sunday at the Serrekunda East Mini-stadium.

The military squad occupy 4th position with 9 points in five games while Gamtel sit at 7th position with 6 points in five games.
