Alhassan Koroma’s 48-minute strike was enough to seal a 1-0 victory for East End Lions against arch rivals FC Kallon at the Siaka Stevens Stadium on Saturday.
The match, which many described as the “title decider” attracted over 35,000 Sierra Leoneans from across the country.
The win has given the Killers a four-point advantage (45 points) at the top of the league with three more matches to play.
According to Coach John Keister, the win serves as a motivation to the team. "We’ll continue this way until the end of the season. My players are always ready to deliver for the team”.
FC Kallon’s Amidu Karim expressed disappointment over the result. "The result was not good for us at all. We didn’t take our chances during the match”.
“The race is not yet over because we have three more matches to play. The title is still open to both teams”
FC Kallon will face East End Tigers, Kamboi Eagles and Bo Rangers in their last three encounters.
League Leaders East End Lions will end their campaign with Freetown City FC, Central Parade and Mighty Blackpool.
Two wins for Lions will earn them the title even if Kallon wins all their remaining matches.
The Cavaliers also have a chance of clinching the title if other results go their way. FrontPage04072014.
