The 2010 GFA league champions Gambia Ports Authority (GPA) will be heading to their Sunday's WAFU-EYADEMA cup competition against Cassa Sport at the back of a disappointing 2-nil defeat to the Senegalese outfit, as they look set to host the visitors as part of the return-leg, to be held at the Serrekunda East Mini-stadium on Sunday.

Coach Peter Bonu Johnson and his impressive ferry boys who have now been confirmed 2010 Leaguechampions following  Wallidan's 2-1 defeat to Armed Forces yesterday with a total of 39 points despite having two games left, will face an uphill task in trying to overturn a 2-nil deficit against Cassa sport who are due in Banjul ahead of the weekend's tie.

Bonu, who was an integral part of The Gambia’s success at the U-20 level during his appointment as the Head Coach of the team remains confident of overturning a 2-nil deficit. But he is however aware of the fact that his team needed to score as many goals as possible, if they want to progress to the next stage of the championship.

"We are still on the preparation for the Sunday's game even though it is difficult with little rest due to our involvement in a tied fixtures in the league but nonetheless we are training tirelessly to make sure we eliminate Cassa Sport," the former Flamemins coach told reporters. This is shortly after his side's hard fought goalless draw against Hawks at the Serrekunda West Mini-stadium on Wednesday.
