Kings look to overcome Sk Russel hurdle

Title-aspiring Bashundhara Kings will host the fourth-placed Sheikh Russel Krira Chakra Limited in their 11th match of the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League today at the Shaheed Dhirendranath Dutta Stadium in Cumilla.

Kings, who have firmed the top position in the points table, secured 28 points from 10 matches with nine wins and one draw. They currently have a six-point lead over second-placed Dhaka Abahani Limited in the points table.

The big-budgeted club also maintained their 15-match unbeaten streak this season including five matches of the season’s curtain-raiser Federation Cup, which they retained successfully.

Sheikh Russel, on the other hand, earned 17 points from nine matches in the ongoing league. 

 In the day’s other match, the seventh-placed Saif SC will play against the 11th-placed Uttar Baridhara Club at the Bangabandhu National Stadium.

 Saif SC, who lost to league leaders Kings 1-2 in their previous league match, got 13 points from nine matches while Uttar Baridhara earned six points from nine matches.

On Tuesday, Chittagong Abahoni Limited beat Rahamatgonj Muslim Friends Society by 2-0 goals in their 10th league match at the BNS.

Nigerian Forward Idenyi Chinedu Mathew and Mannaf Rabby netted one each in the 7th and 83rd minutes respectively.
