Tough time for Air Force and Saunders
Air Force and Saunders, two of the three unbeaten teams so far in the Dialog Champions League, will have a tough time on Saturday when they meet Army and Blue Star respectively. Air Force will be hosting Army while Saunders will travel all the way to Kalutara to take on Blue Star. The third match on Saturday will be played between Ratnam and Nandimithra at City Football Complex.
Of the three matches the match between the two forces should be a thriller. Air Force will try to maintain their unbeaten tag while Army will be hoping to continue their place at the top of the table. Both teams are capable of playing fast and attacking football and it should be a thriller until the final whistle of the game. Saunders looks favorites against Blue Star at Kaluthara. However it won't be easy for the Price Park side as they are up against Blue Star at their home grounds.
Ratnam who have gained only three points in their four games will be hoping to regain the lost prestige in the match against Nandimithra who are improving with each game. Ratnam will be minus their skipper Rowmi Mohiideen (two successive yellow cards) and goal keeper S.D. Tillekaratne for reciving a red card in the last match against Java Lane. This will be an advantage for the Nandimithra forwards who are showing vast improvement.
