St George opens thirteen points lead

St George's title run received a boost when they beat to stretch their lead over 2nd placed Fasil on the BetKing Ethiopia Premier League table.

The "Horsemen" are on a roll and they are helped tremendously by the failings of rivals and potential challengers with Sidama losing and rank outsiders Ethiopia Coffee losing scandalously 0-4 to Mekelakeya.

Mekelakeya benefitted from the win which has earned them a breather from relegation worries as they move up to 12th, but they still need more wins.

Fasil City and Wolaitta Dicha both need the win when they face each other in the next fixtures to narrow the gap down to 10 points so as not to allow the leaders an easier pathway to the title.

The chasing pack of Fasil, Hawassa, Wolaitta Dicha and Sidama all have 34 points to St George's 47 though Fasil and Wolaitta Dicha have both played a game less.

Sidama were not helped in their chase by their 1-1 draw with Adama while Hawassa lost 0-3 to St George.

Whatever the outcome from the game, St George will be comfortable that somehow one or both of Fasil and Wolaitta will drop points.
