Gordon confident ahead of Jungle clash
Arnett Gardens FC will have just another ninety-plus minute to try and keep hold of their Red Stripe Premier League title when they battle Montego Bay United (MBU) in the return leg semi-final Sunday at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex.
Returning home with an advantage, Arnett Gardens hopes were dashed Monday night when they stumbled to a 2-1 loss in Montego Bay.
MBU forward Owayne Gordon was at his imperious best once more, capping his night with a spectacular goal in the 23rd minute.
"We deserve the win because all season we have had it rough against this Arnett side," said Gordon, who was scoring his league-leading 20th goal of the campaign.
"It's all about the final and winning the title. Nothing else matters. Once we get there, if Humble Lion or Portmore make it, we will win it," Gordon added.
The forward has been a revelation all season and is relishing his new-found confidence and, in tandem with either out-of-favour Dino Williams or the industrious Cory Hylton in attack, he just continues scoring goals.
Against one of the better defensive teams in the defending champions, he was great. His goal was sublime.
"I am really feeling good and I am promising another goal on their ground next week, because we know now that we can defeat them," he added.
