The luckiest team will take the crown - Sang Ndong
Wednesday, July 09, 2008
The head coach of Hawks, Sang Ndong, has said that for any of the three front-runners to land the division one league title, an element of luck must be on their side.
Hawks beat Steve Biko 2-0 on Sunday to rejoin Wallidan and Samger in the race for the coveted title, the destiny of which will be decided on Sunday.
All the three teams are level on points, and the former Scorpions coach believes the luckiest and not necessarily the best team among the three will prevail next weekend.
"Three of us are now in the race, and it is not a matter of being the best, but being the luckiest team to be there."
"I hope that by next week, the best and luckiest team will win the league so that we will have a better representative at the CAF Club Champions League," he said.
Hawks will square up against fellow contenders Wallidan in the final game on Sunday at the Independence Stadium, while Samger take on Steve Biko on the same day at the Serrekunda West Mini-stadium.
Since Steve Biko have nothing to fight for, Samger coach, Jane Joof, believes his side will have an easy ride over the Bakau club, unlike the Wallidan and Hawks tie, which he expects to be a nut-cracking encounter.
However, Sang Ndong insisted there is no easy fixture for any of the three teams.
"It is not going to be an easy ride for any of us. Steve Biko are not an easy side to play with and despite not being in the race, they will play for dignity and pride."
"They gave us a tough time on Sunday, and I can see them repeating the same performance next week."
