Bragging rights highlight west Kingston clash

THOUGH fairly new to the west Kingston derby, coach Christopher Bender is unfazed by pressure or expectations of a game, but will be looking to lead Tivoli Gardens past Boys Town tomorrow.

"Every game is different. The team is playing much better and more relaxed we want to go back to our usual self and get some goals," said Bender.

"Our objective right now is to play Boys Town at home and give maximum effort and then play to go into the semi final round."

Bender said his team won't be taking this Boys' Town lightly, and is expecting a tough game.

"We know we can create chances to score; we just have to prevent people from scoring and conceding goals, but we are at home and we are comfortable," he added.

Boys' Town's Andrew Pryce said his team is going all out for a win and to keep a clean sheet.

"We need to weather at least the first 15 minutes of the game, importantly keeping a clean sheet, once we give up an early goal the crowd will get involved and want to propel themselves forward," he said, adding that the clubs are closely bunched, especially in mid table.

"Defensively we have to be sound, and once we get the goals we have to take them. It is really bragging rights in the community and you don't really have to motivate the players to play this game. It's a game that they always look forward to on the fixture and I expect another game come Sunday."
