Former league champions Wallidan might fail in their attempt to retain their GFA league title but they are deniably the most successful first division club in the history of division one football with 10 national league titles under their belt.

The current FA cup title holders who currently occupied 5th position on 30 points will go into today's game with the ultimate aim to snatching another vital 3 points so as to close the gap on the leaders Armed Forces when they host Super cup champions Samger at the Independence Stadium in Bakau as part of the game in hand.

A win for the Blue boys will take them to 2nd place on 33 points should Biko slip to Armed Forces as part of the other game in hand which is also expected to kick-off  today at the Serrekunda East mini-stadium.

Star striker Assan Jatta who is likely to maintain his impressive goal scorer record after netting 7 goals in 3 consecutive matches and his 11 of the season so far is expected to lead Biko's attack when they entertain Armed Forces who defeated them 2-one during the first round.

Biko are second on the table on 32 points and a win against the champions will see them maintain the second place regardless the out come of other remaining games.

Meanwhile Samger who suffered a disappointing two games beaten will come into their game in hand against Wallidan with the hope of putting that behind them to collect the much needed points so as to finish the season at the second place as they did last season.
