MONTGEO BAY, St James — Western-based clubs Montego Bay United (MBU) and FC Reno find themselves in the bottom three of the Red Stripe Premier League after both had underwhelming seasons thus far with victories few and far between.

Each team has managed three wins, and FC Reno and are only above promoted Dunbeholden FC who have also won three games played so far.

FC Reno ended 2018 with six consecutive drawn games. Meanwhile MBU were beaten 0-3 in back-to-back matches and have slipped all the way from sixth, not so long ago, to 11th on 16 points, one less than FC Reno, with MBU playing one game less.

Patience is fast running out among the MBU faithful who were forced to watch recent back-to-back drubbings against Harbour View and Waterhouse.

The statistics are not promising for MBU who dismissed coach Vassell Reynolds and replaced him with Dillon Thelwell in November. The 12 goals scored by MBU are the least of any of the 12 teams in the competition, while the 27 they have conceded represent the second most, with only Harbour View letting in more goals.

FC Reno are only marginally better with 13 goals scored while conceding a total of 22 goals.
