Two relegation fighters Africell and Interior will face each other in the final game of the 2010-2011Gambia Football Association division league at the Serrekunda West Mini-stadium.

Interior and Africell are occupying bottom places each with 18 points but Interior have a better goal difference than the GSM company.

However that might change when the two sides meet this Sunday as both seek to avoid relegation to the second tier of Gambian football.

Each of the sides hoping for victory to avoid relegation to the second division may save their heads if they win the others but a draw will see both sides ply their trade in the second tier of Gambian football next year.

Steve Biko is one team whose position in the league is uncertain although the Bakau giant killers have their fate in their own hands as they only need a point to salvage their position.

Coach Abdoulie Bojang and his charges will travel to Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai to meet Samger this Sunday as they look determined to boost up their chance to maintain their place in the country’s top-flight football league next season.

The current league champions Brikama United, who have bagged 43 points in twenty-one games to celebrate their first ever league title, will battle it out with Gamtel, who have managed to sit at fifth place on the league table with 30 points in twenty-one games.

The two teams will come face to face at the Serrekunda East Mini-stadium.

Second place occupant Real de Banjul will lock horns with 4th place Armed Forces who have collected 30 points in twenty-one games. The game will take place at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.

The 2009-2010 league champions Gambia Ports Authority will face Bakau United at the Brikama Box Bar Mini-stadium on Sunday.

The ferry boys will enter the weekend’s clash on the back of a convincing 1-nil win over Interior, who will be facing a mammoth task of survival when they face fellow relegation battlers Africell.

Coach Bonu Johnson and his lads, who could only manage to collect 34 points in 21 games securing 3rd place five points behind Real De Banjul in second, will face Bakau United at the Box Bar Mini-stadium in Brikama on Sunday.

The Bakau outfit are settled at 8th position with 23 points in twenty-one games.
