A 4-1 smashing of Kolkheti Poti on Sunday 21 October coupled by an earlier 0-0 draw by big boys Dinamo Tbilisi against Lokomotivi Tbilisi has Georgian side Saburtalo - home to Kenyan midfielder Alwyne Tera aka Chamla - dreaming of a first ever Georgian Premier (Erovnuli) League title.


Chamla kicked off the game with his maiden goal this season in the 12th minute  to pave way for a brace from Giorgi Diasamidze and one more by Vladimir Dvalishili to floor Kolkheti who could only muster a consolation in the 53rd minute through Luke Inmadze. By then they had already conceded three times. 

Chamla went on to collect a full 90 minutes to add on to 20 previous league appearances this season.

The damage on Kolkheti Poti sent Saburtalo to the 66 point mark after 29 matches thereby opening a seven point gap over multiple league winners Dinamo who have a game in hand.

The title race is however far from over  as the league wraps after 36 rounds. 

The Saburtalo- Kolkheti clash was the last of the Sunday schedule and a mismatch of sorts as it pitted the top versus bottom league sides.

As Saburtalo collected all spoils, 16-time Georgian League winners Dinamo dropped two crucial points after being forced to a 0-0 draw by Lokomotivi. 


The Georgian league is also home to former Gor Mahia midfielder and Kenya U20 skipper Amos Nondi whose side Dila Gori dropped down from third place after a 2-1 loss to Chikhura on Saturday. 

Other Sunday results have since seen the club fall a place to fifth due to goal difference.
