Central Kingston FC will be looking to extend their dominance over Santos FC, when both continue their long-standing rivalry in the Magnum KSAFA Super League today at Constant Spring Complex, beginning at 6:30 pm.

The game is the first of a Zone B double-header, which closes off with an 8:30 pm clash between Rockfort FC and Brown's Town FC.

Brown's Town FC lie second in the group on 16 points and are certain to play in the quarter-finals, which will comprise the top four teams from both zones. Rockfort FC currently occupy fourth spot on five points, but they are under pressure as Mountain View FC also have five points, but an inferior goal difference.

Santos occupy bottom place in the six-team group on two points, after losing five of their seven matches. To make matters worse, they will be playing against the form team and group leaders, Central Kingston, which have won six consecutive matches and are hell-bent on claiming number seven against Santos.

“Looking forward to the next game, that is Santos. It's been 18 years now that Santos don't beat Central (Kingston) in anything, so it'll be the same treatment,” said Vincent “Bigga” Watson, head coach of Central Kingston.

Also, Central Kingston will look to the extremely talented Ronaldo Henry, their number eight player who is a cut above the league, plus Akeem Robotham, Karim Brown and captain Donovan Alvaranga, to topple their rivals.

In their first round meeting, Robotham and Brown netted goals to hand Central Kingston 2-1 win.

Shane Sewell scored Santos' lone goal in that contest and he will be looking to repeat that feat on Friday.

Other key players in the Santos line-up are Oneeko Allen, Tremaine Simpson, Sherton McPherson and Jeffrey Grant and despite the odds stacked against them, they will be looking to turn the tables on Central Kingston, which beat Mountain View FC last weekend.

After that match, Watson dedicated the victory to past Kingston Technical High School teacher, Jennifer Davis, who passed away recently.
