Gambia Ports Authority are set to move to camp today, Monday 6 February 2017, ahead of their crucial 2017 CAF Champions league  first leg clash with Ivorian-vice champions Sewe Sport on Sunday 12 February 2017, at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.

The ferry boys are set to camp at the Friendship Hostel at the Independence Stadium in Bakau, where they will relax and stretch their muscles up for their crunch continent’s top-tier football club competition tie against the Ivorian premier league.

Coach Alagie Sarr and his charges will be optimistic for a positive result against the Ivorian premier side despite their recent slump in the country’s top flight to increase their chances of reaching the second round.

Sewe Sport are doing extremely well in the Ivorian premier league after winning most of their league fixtures to top the league and are also preparing well for the first leg clash with the Gambian champions.

It would be recalled that Gambia Ports Authority were eliminated in the preliminaries of the 2011 CAF Champions league after losing to Senegalese premier league side Jaaraf 2-0 in the second leg in Banjul after a draw in the first leg in Dakar.
