East End Tiger’s Baimba Sesay says Mighty Blackpool will be a difficult test on Saturday but, the striker is eagerly waiting to face the western giants.

Already three games into the season, the Tigers striker is a joint top scorer with two goals.

His 75th-minute goal on Wednesday against Freetown City FC at the Attouga Mini-stadium tallied him with the likes of Ibrahim Dixon of Central Parade, Abu Komeh of FC Kallon and Foday Mansaray aka Ballack of Ports Authority.

“Honestly, we are going up against one of the best teams in the country Mighty Blackpool,” Sesay to club’s media.

“However, for an upcoming player like myself that can only be a good thing.”

“I am thankful for having good teammates around me, without them, it will be difficult having opportunities.”

The game will kick off at exactly 4:30 PM at the Lungi Central Playing field.
This is Sesay’s first season in the Sierra Leone top-flight football.

Meanwhile, East End Tigers skipper is part of the squad to face Blackpool for the first time this season.

Amos Walker has been out due to a minor injury, the club has confirmed.
