Saint George visits AbaJifar for tricky face-off Tuesday


With five games to go to the end of the season, title contenders Jimma Abajifar and Saint George have a huge showdown in Jimma on Tuesday. Ethiopia Bunna travels south to face Wolayta Dicha.
The timing is good for Jimma Abajifar as Saint George has been decimated by injuries. There are also issues with their central defenders. Meanwhile Jimma’s Okiki Afolabi is on top of his game.
Back in to title contention Ethiopia Bunna needs a win over home side Wolayta Dicha in order to stay among the heavyweights whereas Dicha needs all three points to get far from the relegation zone.
“It is a tricky game but Dicha has every chance to win the game,” a radio talk show presenter suggested. Six points below the top spot, Ethiopia Bunna needs a win.
The new league leaders Mekele travel to Eastern Ethiopia to visit 12th place Diredawa, 6th in the table Fasil entertains Mekelakya at Gondor Fasiledes Stadium while relegation threatened Ethio-Electric travels to 5th place Adama. Tuesday, Hawassa hosts hard to beat neighbors Sidama Bunna.  Woldya, which is  bottom of the table with just 20 points from 24 matches entertains 15th with 24 points Welwalo-Adigrat.
