LEADERS, Portmore United, will be out for revenge when they take on the fast improving UWI in round 15 of the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) at Juici Park field today.

In other games, MoBay United host Boys' Town at WesPow Park, Tivoli entertain Reno at Edward Seaga Complex, Waterhouse play Harbour View at Drewsland and Rivoli take on Cavalier at Drax Hall. All games start at 3 p.m.

Pacesetters Portmore have just two defeats from 14 games, one coming at the hands of Harbour View.

However, their first defeat the season came at the hands of debutants, UWI, who beat them 1-0 in round four. It was also UWI's first ever Premier League win. In the backs of the minds of the Linval Dixon-coached team will be to avenge that loss.

UWI started poorly but since the win over Portmore have looked more assured and competitive with each passing game.

The Marcel Gayle-coached UWI (16) have not lost back-to-back games since that win.

They are just three points above the relegation zone, and three points from this game would be a great boost towards their survival.

Second placed Montego Bay (26) tackle the inconsistent Boys' Town (18). This is the best time for Boys Town to get a number on MoBay, who has fallen off the broil in their last three games, having failed to register a win.

Waterhouse (13) has not lost in four outings, but has just one win. Reno (19) have plugged their losing streak, and has one loss in five games. They will fancy getting something from Tivoli (18) who have three defeats in five.

Cavalier (14) will see this match against bottom placed Rivoli (11) as a great opportunity to get a fourth win of the season. Arnett Gardens play Humble Lion in the Monday night game.
