Garden party in the Jungle

first_img – 8:40 p.m.: Harbour View vs UWI FC – Harbour View Stadium. – 3 p.m.: Boys’ Town vs Rivoli United, Barbican Complex. – 3 p.m.: Reno vs Cavalier, Frome Complex. – 5 p.m.: Humble Lion vs Portmore United, Effortville Community Centre. – 6 p.m.: Waterhouse vs Montego Bay United, Waterhouse Stadium. – 6 p.m.: Arnett Gardens vs Tivoli Gardens, Anthony Spaulding Complex. While Arnett are highly favoured to win the game and continue their impressive form, Tivoli will be looking for points to move out of the drop zone. Arnett, under the guidance of coach Jerome ‘Jerry’ Waite, have scored a league-high 34 goals from 22 games and will be gunning to add to this at home. The diminutive striker Kemal ‘Tull’ Malcolm is the team’s leading marksman with 10 goals. He should receive good support from Newton Sterling, Vishinul Harris, Leon Strickland, captain Oneil’ Bigga’ Thompson, and Ranike Anderson – who moved from Tivoli to Arnett during the transfer window. Tivoli have certainly struggled this season with only five wins, four draws and 12 losses. With Glendon ‘Admiral’ Bailey back in charge after he resigned in 2014, his first order of business is to turn around the fortunes of the club he guided to championship honours in the past. Players such as AndrÈ Morgan, Junior Flemmings, Jermaine Johnson and Rohan Reid will have to step up in order to get a positive result. In other games, Boys’ Town should get the better of last-placed Rivoli United; Portmore United are expected to bounce back against Humble Lion; Waterhouse will have a tough encounter against Montego Bay United; and the Reno FC – Cavalier encounter could go either way.

Among the upcoming fixtures will be a clash between fierce rivals Arnett Gardens and Tivoli Gardens today at the Anthony Spaulding Complex, starting at 6 p.m. Defending champions Arnett are on a high with an unbeaten run of seven games. The ‘Junglists’ have won six and drawn once in that run. They are currently in second position on 42 points, just one behind leaders Portmore United. On the other hand, Tivoli Gardens are in the relegation zone in 11th position on 19 points in the 12-team league. Despite the huge gap that Arnett hold over Tivoli, whenever the teams meet, a tough game is expected. Arnett must be very high on confidence following a gutsy 2-1 win against Portmore United last Monday night. However, Tivoli’s woes continued as they were edged 1-0 by UWI FC in their last fixture.last_img read more
