ST JAMES, Jamaica - Former champions Reggae Youths will go in search of their fifth straight win in the St James Football Association/Sandals Resorts Major League on Thursday when they take on Heights FC at the UDC Field.

Reggae Youths have been perfect so far this season and lead the points table, while Heights FC have lost three straight games.

At the Granville Community Centre, the hosts will be seeking a third straight win when they take on last-placed Montego Bay Boys Club who have lost all five games played so far.

Reggae Youths lead the table with 12 points, three more than Cambridge FC who are on nine points. Lilliput Rovers and Flankers FC are tied on seven points, one more than Granville United on six. Heights FC has three points.

Since beating Montego Bay Boys Club 3-1 in their opening game, Heights FC have been outscored 6-2 in the other three games and will face a Reggae Youths team that scored 14 goals in their four games played so far.

Oshane Thompson leads Reggae Youths with four goals, despite not scoring in their 2-0 win over Cambridge last weekend, and Shandane Blagrove and Denardo Kerr will also be hoping to add to their tally of goals.

Granville United bounced back from back-to-back losses to start the season with back-to-back wins and should make it three straight when they face Boys Club at home.
