Jul 6, 2011, 4:47 PM | Article By: Lamin Darboe

The 2008-2009 Gambia Football Association league champions Armed Forces will today clash with bottom-place occupant Africell in the week eighteen fixtures, at the Serrekunda East Mini-stadium.

Armed Forces, who are 3rd on the league table with 26 points in seventeen games, will be aiming to recover from their disappointing goalless draw against Steve Biko when they meet struggling mobile outfit Africell, who continue to occupy bottom place with only 12 points in sixteen games.

The mobile outfit have played lesser games than other teams with a game in hand against Gamtel, who were in Dakar for the Wafu Club Cup competition a fortnight ago.

Samger will meet Bakau United at the Independence Stadium in Bakau. The Academy boys, as they are fondly called, are 8th position on the league standings with 18 points in seventeen games, while Bakau United are 9th position with 17 points in seventeen games.

Interior, who find themselves at 10th place with 16 points, will face Young Africans at the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai Kunda.

Sunday games will see Wallidan rub shoulders with Bakau giant killers Steve Biko, who could only manage to collect one victory in 17 league matches, which came against neighbours and rivals Bakau United a week ago.

The two sides will come face to face at the Independence Stadium in Bakau tomorrow.

Wallidan are now 5th position with 24 points in seventeen games while Biko are still struggling second from bottom with 14 points in seventeen games, with only five matches remaining for them to put their survival hope alive.

Elsewhere, league leaders Brikama United with 33 points in seventeen games will battle it out with 4th position Gambia Ports Authority at the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai Kunda.
