The Sierra Leone Premier League title race took another dramatic twist on Tuesday when leaders, Diamond Stars suffered a shocking 2-0 defeat away to Kamboi Eagles at the Kenema town field.
It was the second straight defeat suffered by the Premier League big money spenders in three days after losing 1-0 to FC Johansen in Freetown last Saturday.
Diamond Stars' defeat to the Eagles of Kenema has denied them the opportunity to extend their goals difference lead to three points despite playing a game more than second place Kallon FC who also suffered a 1-0 defeat to reigning champions, Ports Authority on Monday.
Meanwhile, the win saw Kamboi Eagles climb to third place with 32 points from 21 games played, chasing the leaders on five points. However, Diamond Stars' goal difference lead over Kallon FC has been reduced to two goals.
Unlike Kenema, there was crowd trouble in Makeni which led to the abandoning of the Wusum Stars versus Gem Stars clash on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Kallon FC will have the advantage to eclipse Diamond Stars at the top of the league table today when they take on eighth place Mighty Blackpool at the National Stadium in Freetown.
Kallon FC will be without their inspirational skipper and legend, Mohamed Kallon, who was red carded in their last encounter against Ports Authority.
