Ports, on 12 points with an early lead on top of the standings, carry the favourite tagging but must first outmuscle rivals Banjul United who are on a slow recuperation.

Bombada will entertain a stuttering Gamtel in another game also on Saturday while Hawks aim a sword on Steve Biko who floored Real de Banjul by a shock 1-0 score in their last encounter.

Brikama United take on Armed Forces, second-placed Samger crossing daggers with Wallidan and Serekunda United battling real de Banjul.
