Reigning champions Montego Bay United will seek to continue on their impressive form in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) when they tackle Humble Lion on match-day 15 at the Effortville Community Centre in Clarendon tomorrow, starting at 3 p.m.

MBU are in pole position on 31 points after 14 games, while Humble Lion comes in fifth position on 22 points.

Despite MBU's nine point gap over Humble Lion, a competitive game is expected from both teams.

MBU have been very consistent with five consecutive wins and hunting a sixth straight. On the other hand, Humble Lion have only won once in the last five fixtures.

Coach of Humble Lion Donovan Duckie says he is expecting another highly competitive encounter.

"Irrespective of where we are in the standings, it will be a difficult game. However, since I have been at Humble Lion we have not lost to Montego Bay," Duckie told STAR Sports yesterday.

 

Quality players

 

"It is going to be a spectator treat, as quality players will be on both teams. We know what we have to do in order to win the game and close the gap om Montego Bay," he continued.

Humble Lion will rely on veteran players such as Wolry Wolfe, Francois Swaby, Devon Hodges and Levaughn Williams for a home win.

MBU are favoured to win this contest as they are in top form with national striker Dino Williams leading the way on a league high seven goals. He is expected to get good support from Allan Ottey and Jermaine Woozencroft,

In another game, second place team, UWI FC are highly favoured to get the better of the league's newcomers Jamalco at UWI Bowl.
