MENGO – All eyes will be on Aidenal as the Futsal Super League continues on Thursday, May 23rd, at the International Futsal Courts in Mengo.
Having failed to stop Yeak Kabowa, from closing in on a first ever League crown, the rest of the League will pray Aidenal somehow pulls off a shock and probably send the ttle race to the wire.
Before the kick of a first ball on Thursday, Yeak sit comfortably at the top of the standings with 60 points.
With only two games to play in the season, the Kabowa based side enjoys a healthy six point lead and head into Thursday’s game requiring only a draw to seal the title.
“We are nearly there but not yet, says Yeak striker Robert Baka.
“We have had a brilliant season and would like to cap it off by securing the title as early as possible.
“We know the situation we are in and we will take the game against Aidenal as a final.
“Hopefully everyone is motivated because complacency is not something we would want to see set it at this point in time.
The game against Aidenal is one that Yeak will be expected to win easily but with the title on the line, nerves will be an issue that needs to be taken care of.
Aidenal have had a trying season thus far and would very much love to end it in a high.
Currently occupying 11th on the log with 29 points from 24 games, the Entebbe based side are coming off a 4-3 victory over Typhoon and will be hoping to make it 2 wins in as many games and send the title to the last day.
The other important fixture on the day will see second placed Park take on Typhoon at 9pm.
Park have been doing the chasing role throughout the season and will be hoping results favour them as the League nears its end.
Six points currently behind the leaders, Park will have to win their game and pray Yeak loses to Aidenal so as to remain with any chances of winning a first ever League title.
However, even if Yeak loses both of it last games, Park need to win by huge margins so as to over take the Kabowa based side.
Currently, Yeak has a goal difference of +63, 16 better off than Park.
“It will be extremely difficult for us to catch them but we will try anyways, says Park captain Iddi Babu.
“However, we will continue pushing until it is mathematically impossible for us to win it.
“We will try to do our job on Thursday as we pray Aidenal pulls off a shock.
Park’s Thursday opponents Typhoon are coming off a loss last week and will be out to improve their 8th position and 34 points.
Elsewhere, 2017/18 champions Dream will also be in action against Yap Stars at 7pm.
Dream have endured a frustrating defence to their title and can only finish as high as 3rd.
After 24 games, they have gathered only 42 points and currently sit 4th.
For Yap Stars, they have been the worst side this season, so far.
Their tally of just 9 points accumulated sees them sit rock bottom of the log.
In the other day’s games, Parakeets play Crown, Kabowa United takes on Nomad, Bajim entertain Elephants while Equator squares off with Mengo City.
Yeak’s Shaffic Avemah still leads the scoring charts with 41 goals, 5 ahead of teammate Enock Ssebagala.
