The Organizing Committee of the 2017 Super Nawettan/Zonals say the third and fourth place matches scheduled for Saturday has been called-off.

Serrekunda East was supposed to take on Gunjur in that game, which was to precede the grand finale between Barra, Essau and Mayamba (BEM) and Sukuta on Saturday.

Chairman Lang Tombong Tamba said the decision is due to logistic problem.

He said they are worried playing the grand final into the night, considering the electricity problem. 

Meanwhile, Sukuta will face BEM on Saturday for the final at the Independence Stadium in Bakau with kickoff time set for 4pm.

Sukuta booted out the defending champions Gunjur 4-2 on post-match penalty shootouts, following a hard-fought 1-1 draw.

Lamin Jallow put Gunjur ahead, before Cherno Sey leveled the tie for the Dembaduu Boys.
