Jacomeno Barrett was a man inspired on Monday night as he pulled off a number of outstanding saves and two in particular in the second half off the sharp Chevone Marsh to preserve a point for Montego Bay United.

Had it not been for Barrett's brilliance, the Montego United team which dominated the game would have ended the encounter empty-handed. The performance from Barrett, who just weeks before was relegated to the bench after being blamed for goals his team conceded, in favour of Romaine Bowers.

"I have been putting in some hard work and it is finally paying off. I just need to continue on that journey and get that lean physique and get back into my game," said the 30 year-old player who still believes he has the ability to get back into the national set up.

"When I saw him break the only thing that was going through my mind was to hold my ground and watch his every move because he is very skilful. I did not try to anticipate, I expected anything and knew within myself that whatever decision he made I just had to counter it," Barrett said explaining what was going though his mind as Marsh drove at him.

The 30-year-old who stands at an imposing 6'4" was so pleased with his performance that he thought that his being named man of the man was a natural occurrence.
