Addis Ababa – When Week 14 of the Ethiopian Premier League resumed here today, the one thing that the tens of thousands of die-hard Ethiopian Bunna fans wanted to see was that their beloved team will finally wake up from the slump that it has been for the past two weeks and collect three valuable points from the visiting Debub Police side.
A victory was all what the fans expected because after all their beloved team was playing at home and was facing a newly promoted side which has lost 10 of its 13 matches so far and was currently seated just one spot above last-placed Dedebit FC. Sadly, Ethiopian Bunna fans had to wait another day to see victory.
Debub Police FC opened the score through Zerihun Anshebo (16′) and extended their lead thanks to Yonas Berta (36′). Bunna’s consolation goal came from Abubaker Naser (38′) and the match ended in favor of the visitors.
The loss dropped Ethiopian Bunna to fourth place behind arch rival Kedus Giorgis, Mekelle and Sidama Bunna.
In other matches played today, Mekelle 70 Endarta hammered Mekelakeya 5-2 and Amanual Gebre-Michael scored four goals (28′, 517′, 55′ and 84′ pen) and Yared Kebede (36′) netting the other. Mekelakeya’s goals came from Menale Wondimu, who scored a goal in each half (27′ & 88′ pen).
Sidama Bunna defeated bottom of the table Dedebit FC 3-0 thanks to Mohamed Naser (26′ & 64′) and Habtamu Gezahegn (44′).
Jimma Abba Jifar was held to a 1-1 draw at home by Bahir Dar Ketema. Adama Ketema also dropped a point as they drew 1-1 with Wolaita Dicha.
