After winning five straight matches, Dedebit FC stands on top of the Premier League table and they show no signs of letting up. Getaneh Kebede, who holds the record for most goals in a season, and upcoming front man Abel Yalew are a deadly pair. The tight defense has conceded only five goals in ten matches. The only issue that their coach Negussie Desta seems to face is that of consistency. So far though that has not stopped them from being unbeaten this season, and with 22 points they stand clear of second place Saint George by six points.
Debebit’s four wins and four draws have come largely from the deadly strike duo and the back four.
Twelve of the fifteen goals have come from Getaneh and Abel which shows their chemistry is working. Meanwhile the team’s four scoreless draws have been a result of outstanding goaltending and defense.
According to critics Negussie Desta needs to find a mid-field playmaker to dominate the traffic and create favorable attack opportunities. “Most of the goals are courtesy of the strikers’ individual effort they could have scored even more,” remarked one critic.
“If Dedebit manages to win their big game against Saint George, a second title is inevitable” he added.
What makes the result even more amazing is that the club’s was hardly involved in the free agent market. Fasika Asfaw was the only signee. A win over Welwalo-Adigrat today gives a huge inspiration for the team before the big clash next Sunday against city rival Saint George.
