The three teams at the bottom of the ABFA premier division table will be in action when the competition continues with a double header at the ARG on Saturday.

Pigotts Bullets and Cool & Smooth Empire are tied in the cellar on 12 points with Willikies third from the bottom five points ahead.

Also on show will be Lime Old Road the team in need of four points to secure its first ever premier division title.

In the first game, Old Road will take on Empire before Bullets and Willikies clash in the feature game.

These are two very important games for each team.

Old Road comes into Saturday’s game after losing its second game of the season last Sunday against Special Security Services All Saints United.

Had Old Road won that game, they would have captured that very elusive premier division championship.

Their opponent on Saturday is Empire, easily the most successful club in football and perhaps any sport in the country with 14 titles in 50 years.

Empire though is staring relegation straight in the face and need to beat Old Road for at least a chance for the playoffs and another opportunity to stay in the premiership.

A win against the league leaders does not guarantee Empire anything other than three valuable points, which keeps the team in the relegation zone.

What a win does though is to keep Old Road and its fans in suspense as well as place Empire in a better position to get away from relegation depending on what happens in game two.

Empire will need help from Bullets against Willikies.

If Willikies beat Bullets, Empire’s chances grow slimmer.

Empire has to take control of its own future and beat Old Road.

That will be a very difficult task as Old Road has not lost two straight games all season.

As a matter of fact Old Road lost one game in the first round and one in the second round, Sunday to United.

The league’s top scorer, Stephan “Tommy” Smith of Old Road, held scoreless in the 0-1 loss also needs to add to his tally, which is being threatened by Tamarley “Ziggy” Thomas of Champion Footwear Hoppers.

One good thing that Empire has in its favour going into this game is the fact that its defence is one of the best in the competition.

Although Empire and United have given up 17 goals this season (second only to Old Road’s 14),

Empire is struggling in the scoring department with only 11 goals scored in 15 games, a sure concern against the league’s stingiest defence.
