Both teams have 37 points from 13 games but Skippers, who are eyeing a double after winning the Presidential Cup, have dislodged DD Sunshine on the eight-member league table through a better goal difference.

The two teams clash Sunday in a league decider.

Kasenda said they will prepare well to win the second title.

“We are looking forward to win a double and reclaim our regional glory. We have a good side to achieve the goal,” she said.

DD Sunshine coach Andrew Chikhosi said the decider will be a tough game.

“This game will be tough being the decider, but we are training hard so that come Sunday we shall be league champions, “said Chikhosi.

In the first-round, the teams shared the spoils following a one all draw. n
