Bombada next stop for champions


By Sulayman Bah Real De Banjul have a mammoth task ahead in their coming weekend fixture against West Coast Region-based Bombada who have so far performed well after climbing up the division from the country’s second tier this season.They tilted up Serrekunda United last week in a battle of league newcomers to get off to a fine start.  After their last match, they need to keep up the momentum in a bid to be considered Brikama’s top club and one of the league heavyweights and as such, must see to it that the flame does not die out when they come face-to face with league champions Real de Banjul. The Banjul mini-stadium will be the host of the cracking encounter as it viewed as home to Real de Banjul in the fixture’s order. Real is tipped to come out of this encounter unscathed, giving they will be playing as hosts and with Banjul fans who may turn up to boost their confidence. But Bombada, despite being newcomers, have shown in their previous clash that they are untroubled by traveling away after having thrashed SK United at the East mini-stadium. Bombada’s arch town rivals, Brikama United, take on Serrekunda United at the Box Bar with Interior FC slugging it out with Gambia Ports Authority at the SK East. Gamtel, who forced a last-gasp equalising goal against the Staeba Boys, face Hawks on Sunday at the SK East. Banjul United clashes with Armed Forces, while Wallidan cross dagger with Bakau United.
