Top of the table E.E Lions seem not ready to drop points on Saturday afternoon Anti Drugs in Saturday’s derby.
Raymond Hunter and John Keister, head coaches of the two teams, will have more directives to give on the touchline as protagonists in a highly expected team match.
Will the Lion roar for the third time in succession against a determined Anti Drugs side on Saturday afternoon, or will they be savored by unexpectedly the claws of the Tigers from the east?
With no points in two games, Bo Rangers technical team and players have started facing the heat from anxious fans who desires all three points as consolation for a team spirit shown so far both home and away when they play Central Parade at the Bo-Kenema highway stadium in Bo Rangers.

Having won one and draw another, Central Parade team will be packed with expectation in their meeting the Premier league bottom side, Bo Rangers. The stakes are high with one expected to thrive in the country’s second capital.
Old Edwardians were hard done by in their one nil defeat to top of the table, East End Lions on 2nd February. With RSLAF having the same fate on that same day, Saturday’s clash between the two arouses the prospect of a nail biting encounter with cheers and jeers from both set of fans expecting a triumphant end on their side.
The first goal for either would be a turning point to a show expectelation of glamour and drama at the main bowl of the Siaka Stevens Stadium.
On Sunday, 10 February, the SLPL highest winners, Mighty Blackpool, angry for their first three points, welcomes two times winners, FC Kallon at the Siaka Stevens Stadium.
This clash between the two explains a family tale only the players on the pitch of play can interpret. Just one point in two matches, the Tiss Tass boys illustrious history will be at stake and hopes of not joepardising their glarious standing are high. This will be dashed if no win in three against the young boys of Kallon.
FC Kallon were unconvincing during mid week versus Anti Drugs raising eyebrows from pundits on the team’s consistency.
The actions are sure to be thrilling under the flood lights of the Siaka Stevens Stadium on Sunday between the Tiss Tass boys, Mighty Blackpool and the Cavallians, FC Kallon.
