MANILA, Philippines – Dynamic Herb Cebu looks to close the gap on Kaya FC-Iloilo as the Gentle Giants take on the Azkals Development Team in the Philippines Football League (PFL) sponsored by Qatar Airways on Saturday at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium.


Both Dynamic Herb and ADT battled to a scoreless draw in September last year. The league awarded a 3-0 forfeit win for Cebu due to ADT’s unavailability to travel to Cebu for their match in October.


Cebu is currently in second place with 28 points, eight points behind Kaya FC Iloilo, although the Gentle Giants have played two matches less. ADT is in fourth with 21 points.


Kaya also faces a stern test on Sunday against Stallion Laguna at Biñan Football Stadium. Over at the Imus Grandstand, Mendiola FC 1991 hopes to repeat over Maharlika Manila in a clash of bottom teams.


Kaya is coming off a comfortable 5-0 win over Maharlika Manila FC last weekend with five goal scorers in Daizo Horikoshi, Dylan Nobiraki, Jhan Melliza, Eric Giganto, and Tamon Horikosh.


Stallion, meanwhile, denied Dynamic Herb Cebu maximum points with a 1-1 draw thanks to new signing, Miguel Mendoza’s late equalizer.


But Stallion will miss the services of goalkeeper Patrick Deyto, who was sent off in the match against Cebu after an altercation with the referee.


Mendiola has won its last two outings against Maharlika Manila, 1-0 and 3-0 respectively. (Pooled Article)
