Molynes United could seal promotion to the Red Stripe Premier League if they beat Faulkland FC and both Wadadah and Baptiste Alliance fail to beat Downs FC and Lime Hall FC, respectively, in their Jamaica Football Federation Play-offs today.

With leaders Vere United, on 10 points, idle this round, Kingston and St Andrew outfit Molynes United, who are second on nine points from three games, could see their fourth-consecutive win not only push them to the top of the seven-team points standing, but could prove elusive for the chasing pack of Wadadah, Baptiste Alliance and Faulkland, who are all on four points each.

With the top two teams gaining promotion to the Premier League, Downs FC of Manchester, and Lime Hall out of St Ann are out of contention, with one point each.

Molynes United travel to Jarrett Park for a 3:30 pm assignment against a Faulkland team that cannot afford to drop any more points. They are in fifth place on four points, which is five points adrift of Molynes United, and if they lose they could be out of contention, as they are already sitting six points behind leaders Vere United with two games remaining.

Molynes United are proving to be more organised and are doing the right things and getting the results, but they are not superior — and today's away test against Faulkland will be their biggest test to date. If they get through it, then they are well on their way to the Premier League.

Meanwhile both Wadadah and Baptiste Alliance will be hoping to keep their slim chances alive. Wadadah travel to Drax Hall to play a Lime Hall team they must beat. Lime Hall are in disarray following their exit from the tournament on Sunday after their 1-2 defeat to Molynes United, and should not provide too much resistance.

Baptiste Alliance, of St Thomas, travel to Downs Community Centre also knowing they must win to stay in contention. Downs are down but not out. Although they have just one point they can finish with a maximum 10 points and will thus have something to play for which will make life difficult for Baptiste Alliance.
