Feb 21, 2012, 1:40 PM

The Gambia Ports Authority are to lock horns today with Armed Forces in the Week 7 fixtures of the 2011-2012 GFA division one league at the Serrekunda East Mini-stadium.

The GPA are so far leading the league table with 12 points in six games. After losing three games in a row, Armed Forces, with only six points at hand, will be hoping to bounce back.

Academy boys Samger, at 9 points, will face 2nd-placed Young Africans, with 11 points, at the Banjul KG5 Mini-stadium.

Young Africans lost 3-1 to GPA in their Week 6 fixtures clash recently.

The Brikama Box Bar Mini-stadium will host the clash between Bakau United and city boys Real De Banjul in the other Week 7 fixtures on the same day. Bakau United have 9 points while Real De Banjul have so far collected 6 points in six games.

Tomorrow, Bakau giants Steve Biko, who currently have 5 points, will take on embattled and struggling side Hawks at the Serrekunda East Mini-stadium.

Hawks are languishing with 3 points at the bottom of the table. But what is interesting about this game is that both sides will have to go all out to attain a victory in order to move away from relegation zone. Which of the two teams will attain this desired result is for the heavenly stars to tell, but this can only be humanly ascertained after the 90-minute encounter tomorrow.

Current league champions Brikama United, at 7 points, will face blue boys Wallidan, also at 7 points, at the Brikama Box Bar Mini-stadium.

Brikama United will be going for a comeback after losing 1-0 to Senegal’s league champions US Ouakam in the CAF African Champions league at the weekend.

Gamtel, at 10 points, will entertain the newly promoted side Serrekunda United, who currently have 8 points, at the Banjul KG5 Mini- stadium on the same day.
