By Abubakarr Kamara
As the Sierra Leone Premier League progresses to its ninth week, four matches that have the potential to shake the top, middle and bottom of the league table will be played on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in two venues. But the much talked about match will be on Wednesday at the Siaka Stevens Stadium between FC Kallon (The Cavaliers) and Bo Rangers (The Elephant).
Struggling Sierra Leone International Football Academy (SLIFA) will be looking forward to a second win as mid table Old Edwardians seek for a big leap on the league table.
Tuesday June 8: SLIFA vs Old Edwardians FC (SIAKA STEVENS STADIUM @ 6:45PM
The Academy Boys who are currently at the rock bottom of the league table with four points from six matches; albeit two games at hand will engage 10th place May Park Boys, who also have a game in hand and on 10 points.
A win for the host will see them leap over Ports Authority and Mighty Blackpool who are on 17th (with six points from eight matches) and 16th (with six points from seven matches) places respectively.
A win for the visitors will see them move from 10th to 4th place on goal difference with Central Parade, who would by then be a game lesser.
May Park would remain on 10th position if they drew goalless or one-all draw while a draw above that will see them frog-jump Tigers to 9th place.
On the other hand, a draw will leave the host at the rock bottom of the table.
Wednesday June 9: FC Kallon vs Bo Rangers (SIAKA STEVENS STADIUM @ 6:45PM (MATCH OF THE MIDWEEK)
In what could be described as a battle for supremacy and a title contenders’ clash; 5th place FC Kallon will on Wednesday play host to the league leaders, Bo Rangers.
While the Cavaliers may want to maintain their record over the Elephants and carved a place in the top three, the Elephants might be seeking a breathing space from the Wusum Boys and extend their one point lead to four points even if its temporal.
A win for FC Kallon will see them temporarily on 3rd place with 15 points from nine matches; two more than Central Parade (13 points from seven matches) and East End Lions (12 points from seven matches); while a win for Bo Rangers will see them extend their lead to 21 points from nine matches.
With both teams charged for success, the Siaka Stevens Stadium will be the place to be on Wednesday night as Abu Komeh likely to feature against his former side for the first time.
