Leaders Meadforest go for fourth-straight win in Tier II
LEADERS Meadforest FC will be going for a fourth-straight win in the Jamaica Football Federation’s Tier II competition on Saturday when they take on winless Baptist Alliance at Constant Spring, staring at 3:30 pm.
Meadforest, the first team from the Kingston and St Andrew Confederation to play in the Premier League qualifying competition, are on nine points, two more than second-place Treasure beach who face Falmouth United. Reno FC are in third place on six points and Tru-Juice FC are on five points in fourth place.
Meadforest FC have cruised through the competition so far and are expected to get the better of Baptist Alliance who have lost two of their three games so far, conceding six goals in the process.
Rodari Edwards and Delano Daley have led the Meadforest scoring so far and should give the Baptist Alliance defence a lot to think about today.
Treasure Beach lost their unbeaten start after they were held 1-1 at home by Lime Hall Academy on Wednesday, and will travel to face a Falmouth United team that will be confident after coming from two goals down to earn a draw against Racing United, and who will be at home.
Falmouth United are off to a better start than last year when they had to wait until the fourth game to earn their first win; they will also have an edge over Treasure Beach who they had beaten 2-0 last season.
After failing to get on the scoresheet on Wednesday, Kadeem Stone will hope to score for Treasure Beach today while Falmouth will hope Braxton Richards and Anthony Roberts can continue from where they left off on Wednesday.
Reno FC are flying over the last two games in which they scored eight goals and will take on a Tru-Juice FC team that has only picked up two points in their last two games after beating Wadada United 5-0 in their opening game.
Tru-Juice have also only scored once in their last two games and could be on the back foot with the likes of Michael Kerr, who has scored four goals so far, and Abijah Wallace running at them.
Albion Mountain will hope to get an edge over Brown’s Town who has earned just a point in their last two games after starting with a win in a game which sees the teams separated by a point.
Hopewell United and Wadada United will both be seeking their first point when they meet at Irwin High, and Hopewell will hope they can repeat last season’s 3-2 win over the former Premier League giants.
Racing United should rebound from Wednesday’s setback against Falmouth United when they go to Lynch Park to face Portlanders FC, with both teams on four points each.
