If the newly-formatted Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) was to enter its knockout stage now, champions Harbour View and Portmore United would indeed be in line to be relegated, while Arnett Gardens and Boys' Town would be out of the playoffs.
The good thing for them is that the league is only two games old and those positions are expected to change favourably as the league progresses.
The two big guns are sitting at the bottom of the 12-team league after failing to secure a win in their first two games.
Portmore United are pointless after losing to Cavalier 0-1 on the opening day, and then crashing 0-2 at home to Humble Lion.
Harbour View are on one point after losing to Sporting Central Academy and managed only to eke out a point in a 1-1 draw with Boys' Town.
Despite being early in the season, both Humble Lion and Cavalier have shown their intent by securing maximum points from their two games.
Humble Lion out of May Pen, Clarendon, travelled to the Ferdie Neita Park in St Catherine and inflicted a demoralising defeat on former champion Portmore United with two goals inside five minutes by Jermaine Fletcher (20th) and Wolry Wolfe (25th).
The Geoffrey Maxwell-coached outfit have jumped to six points and are top of the league by goal difference over Cavalier also on six points.
Having comfortably survived their first season back in top-flight football last season, Cavalier are proving once again that they will be a force t be reckoned with.
With coach David Laylor promising beautiful football, which will eventually translate into victories Cavalier, having knocked off Portmore United last week, went one better by silencing pre-tournament favourites Waterhouse with a late goal from Girvon Brown in the 90+3 minutes.
Glendon 'Admiral' Bailey, meantime, has promised that teams will have to be at their best to keep Tivoli Gardens off the scoresheet and Rivoli United did just that in a 0-0 draw at the Spanish Town Prison Oval on Sunday.
But things could have been different for the visiting Tivoli Gardens had Rafiek Thomas converted a penalty with approximately 10 minutes remaining. Nevertheless, they climbed into third spot on four points, while Rivoli United are down in eighth spot with two points.
Another missed penalty in the second half, this time by Kirk Ramsey, denied Arnett Gardens victory in their 1-1 draw with the promoted August Town at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex in their weekend fixture.
Newton Sterling had given the home team Arnett a 42nd-minute lead with a wonderful volley from just inside the box. But Richard Orrett capitalised on a sleeping Arnett backline and slotted home in the 55th for a share of the points for August Town. August Town are on two points ahead of Arnett Gardens with one point.
Highly-touted Waterhouse FC are down into fourth spot on three points, the same as Montego Bay United who defeated Sporting Central Academy 2-0 with goals from Bahamian striker Lesly St Fleur and Ronaldo Rodney.
