Sierra Leone Premier League club, Wilberforce Strikers are at better position to escape relegation this season after benefiting from six points without kicking a ball.

The team was awarded six points in less than two days after Freetonians SLIFA and FC Kallon were at the receiving end of a disciplinary action taken by the Premier League Board.

3 points were deducted from SLIFA after the Board found out that they used an ineligible player against Wilberforce in a match earlier in the season.

The Board said SLIFA violated Rules 8(2) 8(8) and 11 of the SLFA Code.

Wilberforce were therefore awarded three points and three goals.

FC Kallon also faced similar consequence after they failed to honour their fixture on Wilberforce on Wednesday, July 20.

The match was the remaining 12 minutes of an earlier match that ended abruptly.

Report indicated that Kallon complained that the Board did not inform them in time to properly prepare for the match.

Wilberforce, on the hand refused for the match to be postponed citing that their players were already in camp when they received FC Kallon’s noticed.

The Board awarded three points and three goals to Wilberforce Strikers.

Wilberforce, who were in the drop zone now sit in 15th position with 36 points -1 point above the drop zone with a match to spare.
