Kenyan midfielder Alwyn Luheni Tera's team, Saburtalo has a clear view and path to a first ever Georgian Premier League title in spite of a 1-1 draw against Lokomotivi Tbilisi on Saturday 10 November at the Mikheil Meskhis Sakhelobis Stadium.
That draw would have otherwise dented their title charge but happenings in the league on the same weekend, particularly a shocking 4-1 loss of big boys Dinamo Tbilisi on Sunday by visiting Chikhura, sent Saburtalo eight points clear atop the 10-team league with just four games to spare.
Saburtalo is now on 71 points after 32 games and Dinamo second with 63 points.
U23 call up
Tera aka Chamla, called in to beef up Francis Kimanzi's Olympic squad ahead of the Wednesday 14 November AFCON U23 qualifier against Mauritius in Nairobi, missed the drawn game for Saburtalo on Saturday.
In another tie within the same league, former Kenya U20 player Amos Nondi Obiero clocked a rare full 90 minutes as Dila Gyori dismissed already relegated Kolkheti Poti 1-0 at the Tengiz Burjanadze Stadium on Saturday.
It was game 18 of the season for Nondi who until Saturday had been used to cameo appearances for Dila, a club that is now fifth in the log but with a chance to nail a third place season finish.
