The 2012 Gambia Football Association (GFA) Super Nawettan football tournament will produce spectacular and fascinating encounters today Wednesday 5 December 2012 at Brikama and the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai Kunda respectively.

Brikama will host Gunjur in group B encounter at the Brikama Mini Stadium.

Brikama made a spectacular start to the 2012 super Nawettan competition after a slender victory over Sukuta on Sunday and will be hoping for victory to maintain a hundred percent record as well as maintain their unbeaten run in the championship, in order to keep their hopes of making it to the quarterfinals following their dismal performance last year.

Today’s game will be the first game for Gunjur and they will also be expecting a win after their poor performance in last year’s campaign.

Bakau will face debutant Brufut in the other group B clash at the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai Kunda.

Bakau have won the super Nawettan trophy on several occasions but were suspended for a year after crowd violence during the 2009 super Nawettan final against Serrekunda East.

Brufut on the other hand are the debutant but can surprise many teams in the competition as they are seen by many as the underdogs.
