Battle for RSPL fourth spot resumes

first_imgWith the top three of Portmore United, Montego Bay United and defending champions Arnett Gardens securing their semi-final round qualification for the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL), the battle will resume for the other spot.In contention for that spot are the promoted UWI FC (42 points, who are sitting in pole position as they currently occupy fourth, a position they earned last week with a comfortable win over the defending champions Arnett Gardens at the UWI Bowl. Humble Lion (41), the team which occupied that spot for most of the season, will be looking to get an away win over the inconsistent Boys’ Town (38) at Barbican.stop RenoFormer champions Harbour View (39) are still in the running, but they let themselves down badly last week with a loss to Boys’ Town. To get back in the picture, they will have to stop Reno, something that is not beyond them.Humble Lion are just a point behind UWI FC and will be hoping for a slip by the college boys and that they get the better of Boys’ Town to put themselves in the driver’s seat.UWI FC cannot be faulted for the confidence flowing through their ranks ahead of their game against Cavalier, especially after the results of last week. A win over the defending champions is nothing to sniff at and with today’s opponents being put to the sword last week by the relegation-battling Rivoli, they are well within their right to think that these are three points they can take, especially at home.Goalscoring is something that UWI FC can confidently say they have addressed with Girvon Brown finding his scoring boots and using them with regularity and he has been getting good support from Anthony Grant, Anthony Greenland and Kemar Cummings. Cavalier, for their part, will be happy that their top player Chevone Marsh has caught the eye of the national selectors, but will not be so happy that that good fortune has denied them of his services for today’s match.In Marsh’s absence, Cleon Pryce and Sulae McCalla will have to shoulder more of the attacking responsibility for Cavalier.Today’s Games:• 3:30 p.m: Arnett Gardens vs Montego Bay United – Anthony Spaulding Complex• 3:30 p.m: Boys’ Town vs Humble Lion – Barbican Stadium• 3:30 p.m: Harbour View vs Reno – Harbour View Stadium• 3:30 p.m: Portmore United vs Waterhouse – Juici Park, Clarendon• 3:30 p.m: Rivoli United vs Tivoli Gardens – Spanish Town Prison Oval• 3:30 p.m: UWI FC vs Cavalier – UWI Bowl, Monalast_img read more
