MENGO – Yeak Kabowa will be hoping to take a gigantic stride towards securing the 2018/19 Futsal Super League title, when they take on Parakeets on Thursday.
The Kabowa based side is in control of the title race as they start the day holding a six point lead at the top of the standings.
Last week’s hard fought 2-1 win against Crown felt much more like six points earned following Park’s inability to roll over Crown.
However, this is no time to get complacent as the title is not yet sealed.
“We have a glorious opportunity to win the League especially after last week’s result, says Yeak’s Robert Bakka ahead of the game.
“However, this is no time to take the gas off the peddle as anything can happen in the last four games.
“We are going to go into each of them (remaining games) eyeing victory and hopefully secure the title before the last day.
Yeak are currently on 54 points from 22 games and winning their next two games will all but secure them their first ever League crown.
For their opponents on Thursday, Parakeets have been a sleeping favourite this season.
After topping the standings earlier on, they have failed to forge a run of consistent results and in the end fallen far behind in the title race.
Off a 3-1 demoralizing loss to Aidenal last week, Parakeets start the day in 5th, 16 points behind Yeak.
Second placed Park will also be in action on the same day as they take on Yap Stars at 8pm.
The mood in camp is low for the Iddi Babu captained side after drawing 5-5 with Bajim in their last game.
The draw on Match-Day 21 means that Park start the day six points off the pace and any more slip-ups will all but hand Yeak the title.
“It is such a pity that we failed to beat Bajim last time out. Said Babu ahead of Thursday.
“It is even harder in the hunt for a first ever title as we are six points behind the leaders.
“All we have to do is win our remaining games and see what happens.
Park will be eyeing all three points as they take on the worst side in the division.
Yap have been horrible this season, winning only three games so far.
They are still the only side yet to draw in the League with all their other 19 games ending in defeat.
Elsewhere, defending champions Dream will do battle with Kabowa United at 7pm.
Dream cannot wait for the season to end as they have punched below their wait this campaign.
Coming into it, as the defending champions, they were expected to be at one of the contenders at this stage but things have not fallen into place.
Currently 16 points off the top of the standings, Dream know they cannot retain their title and the only consolation would be finishing as high as possible.
The game against Kabowa United provides a chance to make it three wins on the trot.
Kabowa have been woeful all season and going into the game without star-player Mahad Mugerwa, the odds on them winning must be extremely high.
In their last games, Dream scrapped to a 3-2 victory over Elephants while Kabowa United were walloped 7-1 by Mengo City.
In the other day’s games, Typhoon takes on Mengo City, Aidenal play Elephants, Crown tussles it out with Equator while Nomad and Bajim lock horns.
Yeak’s duo of Shaffic Avemah and Enock Ssebagala lead the scoring charts with 36 goals each, six ahead of Park’s Iddi Babu.
