AFTER breaking a four match winless streak with a win last weekend, second place Portmore United will look to end the first round of the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) on a winning note when they face fourth place Arnett Gardens in the feature RSPL tomorrow.

Montego Bay United look set to finish the round atop of the standings. There are three points clear at the top of the table and at least a draw against ninth placed Rivoli would ensure the St James club kick-off the second round on top of the league.

Rivoli have lost their last three contests but are probably the most inconsistent team in the league.

Waterhouse could slip further behind at the bottom of the standings, as they face the league's most in form team in Humble Lion at Effortville. Waterhouse have lost three of their last four matches, while Humble Lion has taken maximum nine points from their last three outings.

High-flying Tivoli will fancy getting back on the winning track against UWI who have lost one game in their last four and are looking to stay unbeaten for a second straight game.

Harbour View and Cavalier are both headed in different directions at this stage of the season.

So while Harbour View will be looking to make another step closer to the top half of the table, tenth placed Cavalier will want to prevent any further slippage, which would leave them in the relegation zone.

Boys' Town and Reno are moving in different directions in the table. Reno have dropped from the top four and are now sixth with 14 points. While Boys' Town have climbed out of the bottom two are eighth on 12 points.

Portmore leads with 21 points, followed by Portmore and Humble Lion on 18, Arnett Gardens on 17, and Tivoli, Reno, and Harbour View with 14 each.
