AFTER beating Arnett Gardens three times in three meeting this season, twice at Wespow Park, Montego Bay United captain Dwayne Ambursley is confident they will drive home their away-goal advantage Monday night at Catherine Hall.

MoBay left the Tony Spaulding Sports Complex with a 1-1 draw from the first leg of their Pemier League quarter-final on Monday, a match Arnett's coach, Jerome Waite, said he was hoping to win by two or three goals.

Ambursley told STAR Sports MoBay have Arnett's ticket and Monday will be the Junglists' last game in the league this season.


Pretty confident


"This is the sixth season I am here and we always beat them. The one time they beat us was in the (2015) final and probably a couple other times, so we pretty confident we can do it.

"Catherine Hall is heavy and it is very difficult to play on because of the heaviness, legs tend to get heavy. With the field being heavy and the amount of pace coming at them, we should create at least half-dozen clear chances, and that suppose to be enough to get two goals.

"We must can shut out two, so even if they have a good night, it should still be 2-1, so that will be their last game for the season," Ambursley declared, pointing out that they were disappointed at giving up the equaliser on Sunday after Keniel Kirlew's 68th-minute goal.

"We think it is a fair result. It's a bit disappointing but not demoralising because if somebody told us this is how it would go, we would take it knowing we are going into the second-leg in Mobay. Kingston teams don't do well out of Kingston, and if we have one football game to win and it is going to be played in MoBay, we give ourselves a good chance," he told Star Sports.

With all to play for in MoBay, Waite believes Arnett can win despite not getting a point there in two games this season.

"I am pretty confident and the team is confident we can win there, MoBay have beaten us all season and today (Monday) we showed that we are not going to lie down and die. To come from behind shows we have character. It's about reaching the semi-finals and we have been there the last three seasons," he said.
