Montego Bay United gained sole leadership of the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) yesterday, after Dino Williams struck a first-half brace to give the former winners a 2-0 win over Tivoli Gardens at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex.

MoBay came into this round of matches tied on 14 points with Portmore United.

However, the St Catherine side drew 1-1 with Reno to fall two points behind MoBay on 17 points.

Williams, who has a groin injury, opened the scoring four minutes into the match, capitalising on a mix-up in defence to head home from close range. Then in 45 minutes, the 25-year-old rose to head home a corner from six yards.

"I am not a hundred fit and as an injured player to get two goals in a tough game, I can't complain. I have to keep working hard, and each game see if I can do it for my team," Williams, who leads the league with eight strikes, told the star.
