Sport analysts have described the match between Gardnerville FC and the Rollers as a "do or die" battle.

Mighty Barrolle Secretary General,   Ivan Browne, said: “The team will exert efforts in the game to collect the three points."

”“I am of the conviction that Barrolle will take the day though Gardnerville is also a force to reckon with,” he noted. 

The  LFA rescheduled  the  game from  Wednesday to Thursday, July 6, 2016  due to   the engagement  of  the  ATS   by  the National  Muslim Council  of Liberia  to  mark  the  end  of Ramadan.

Meanwhile, Mighty Barrolle President,  Eugene Nagbe,   ,  has  promised  to  take  the  Rollers  back  to  the  First  Division. Mr  Nagbe  who  is  also  Minister  of  Information, said: “ My administration  will  stand  behind  the  team  to achieve  its  goal.”

The pending match is the  third  season the  Rollers  are  playing  in  the  second  tier  of Liberian  football.

In a related development, NPA Anchors will play Mighty Dragons of Bong County in the second encounter. Reports  say  the Gbarnga  based  squad  which  is  threatened  by  regelation,  is  poised  to  fight  and  save  face   against  the  Anchors.

Dragons  were defeated   in  Gbarnga last  Sunday  by   runaway champion,  Barracks  Young Controllers  with  a  score  of  2  goals  to  one . The team got promotion to the First Division a season ago, but has been struggling to maintain its status.
