Fleetwood United, our sister team over in Dubai, continued their brilliant start to their first-ever UAE Third Division as they beat Elite Falcons 1-0 at Sevens Stadium to stay top of the league.
After beating high-flying Al Nujoom last Saturday, the Dubai Cods found themselves joint-top of the division, meaning the pressure was on to take all three points from their clash against Elite Falcons, which they did.
It was a tough encounter throughout but a first half strike from Chris Nkoulou was the difference in the game, making it three wins from four.
They are back in action on Saturday 26 March in a 5pm kick-off (1pm UK time) as they host Al Gharbia who currently sit in fifth after losing out to Zamalek at the weekend.
United XI: W.Kouassi (GK), Badji, Doukoure, Noumonvi (Militaru 58’), Dieng (Bouda 76’), de Souza, Ebale, Nkoulou (Kouakou 58’), Ndiaye (Ladji 58’), Delord, Bamba (Hamad 58’).
