Nimba Kwado’s title chase had a huge blow on Match-day 18 after suffering a hammering 2-0 setback away to Capemount giants FC Bea Mountain in Kinjor on Sunday, 18 April, 2021. Kwado have been the main contenders vying to dethrone defending champions LPRC Oilers. The defeat was the second for the Mount Nimba boys this campaign.
This means Kollie Korvy’s men will remain at the Second-place on the table with two points adrift reigning champions LPRC Oilers with 4 matches left to close the season. Kwado are now without a win in their last 3 league fixtures.
Their only hope now is for the Oil Boys to slip off so that they [Kwado] can collect a win in order to regain the league table. Meanwhile, title holders LPRC Oilers now maintained a 2 points league atop the table after a dramatic 2-2 draw away to Freeport FC on Match-day 18 at the ATS, in central Monrovia.
The Oilers had an impressive comeback after being held back by 2 goals earlier in the blockbusting showpiece to earn a significant one point.
Their tally is now increased to 36 points from 18 league games with two points now separating them from their title rivals Nimba Kwado who remain Second with 34 points.
Nimba FC and Small Town respective relegation was confirmed after both teams failed to honor their league games. Nimba FC should have played away to LISCR FC at TUSA Field in Gardnersville whilst Small Town had a fixture against Mighty Barrolle. This means that the both sides will now play in the Second Division league next season after forfeiting the games.
They remained 14 and 15 points from safety, but there are only 12 points [4 games] left to fight for in the season. Holding all factors constant as it stands, it is obvious that LISCR and the Rollers will be handed all three points respectively.
This will now keep the Shipping Boys at Third-placed, as they remained 1 point behind Nimba Kwado and 3 points beneath league leaders LPRC Oilers.
The Kayan Pepper Boys of Mighty Barrolle will move midway on the ladder after all three points as all three are being forfeited to them. Nimba United secured a miraculous and well-deserved 2-0 away victory over counterparts NPA Anchors and moved to safety.
This means NPA Anchors also dropped in the relegation territory at the 10th spot as United advanced at the Ninth-place on 21 points, one ahead of NPA Anchors.
At the newly refurbished SKD Practice Pitch, Watanga FC who changed their home ground for the first this season from the Blue Field in PHP were held to a one-all draw against visitors Monrovia Club Breweries in Paynesville.
