Reigning champions Montego Bay United (MBU)will bow back into action in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) when they face Arnett Gardens at the Anthony Spaulding Complex in Trench Town, tomorrow at 6 p.m.

MBU hosted the Caribbean Football Union Club Championship group stage in Montego Bay last week and had their games in the RSPL rescheduled. MBU exited the CFU as they finished third in the group.

Now, they are back. The MBU team is currently in fifth position in the RSPL on 43 points from 23 games, trailing leaders, the University of the West Indies (50)

 

Quality players

 

It is always an interesting contest whenever both teams meet, so another close game is expected. MBU will look to put their CFU disappointment behind, and focus on the game today. They will come to town with quality players such as captain Dwayne Ambusley, Owayne Gordon, Dino Williams, Allan Ottey, Kevon Lambert and Cornwall College schoolboy star striker Jourdain Fletcher.

Sixth-place Arnett will look to continue their good run in the third and final preliminary stage. They are coming off a 3-2 win against Harbour View on Sunday, and MBU could be in for a tough afternoon in the'Jungle'.

The Jerome Waite-coached team will rely on Newton Sterling, Marvin Morgan Jr, captain Oneil Thompson, Dicoy Williams and goalkeeper Omarley Francis for victory.

In another game, Maverley-Hughenden will host neighbouring Waterhouse in a relegation battle at Constant Spring Complex. Maverley are currently in the relegation zone on 24 points, just four adrift of Waterhouse (28).
