THE situation at the bottom of the Primus League table became clearer last evening.

With Musanze all but relegated following their 1-0 defeat at the hands of reigning champions APR; Bosco Gasana scored a stunning free kick to give Amagaju a precious 1-0 win over Rayon Sport in the lucrative League.

Gasana’s 7th minute strike moved the Southern Province side to 16 points.

At Huye stadium, Mukura hauled themselves clear of danger with a 2-0 win over Marines courtesy of a Kassim Hassan brace that left them in 8th spot with 20 points. There is now a two-point gap between themselves and the pair of Marines and AS Kigali and a further four-points clear of Amagaju, who have to beat Marine next month to survive the drop.

In his post match remarks last evening, Amagaju Coach Benjamin Nshimiyimana told Times Sport that the Rayon Sport is a huge morale booster going into the final game.

“The players were magnificent today and I salute them for that. This is the kind of performance we need on June 22 to stay in this league.”

“But there is confidence in the side that we can pull it off and only call upon the fans to back the team up like they did today,” the coach added.

Today, title hopefuls Atraco are in for a stern test when they take on Etincelles in Rubavu. Sam Timbe is well aware that anything short of a win will all but gift APR a record eleventh title with three games still to play. Atraco have 40 points, one clear of Etincelles and adrift of APR.
