THOUGH Red Stripe Premier League contenders Harbour View and Boys' Town have a respective seven titles between them, there will be no friendly discourse when the rivals clash for three precious points in tomorrow's action.

Their first game earlier in the season ended in a tame 1-1 draw, but come tomorrow, both will be looking to widen the gap, and move up the table.

Boys' Town are determined to make this season one of merit. So far they have 15 points courtesy of four wins, three draws and four losses. The currently sit fifth place.

Goalkeeper of 22 years, Kirk Porter, said the team has a mixture of youth and experience.

"We are coming together good right now, because we started off the season badly, but we are catching up after the end of the first round. We are working to improve on areas to stop conceding and scoring goals," he told STAR Sports at the RSPL match day teams' Press Conference at Digicel SportsMax Studio on Thursday.

"My personal goal is to win this game, and keeping a clean sheet as well. It's tough but I am determined to achieve it," he added.

Harbour View won the league recently in 2013, prior to that in 2000, 2007 and 2010, and are currently seventh with 14 points courtesy of three wins, five draws and three losses.

"A victory against Boys' Town will definitely be a positive start and moving forward as we look to put the first round behind us," said forward Claudius Blackburn, who is aiming for his first goals in what has been an "up and down season" so far.

Blackburn said scoring 14 goals is his objective.

"It will definitely help Harbour View move forward," he said.

Sunday's game could be a very tight encounter, but fans could be set to see attractive passing football.
