Wolmer's, Tivoli face off in top clash
Wolmer's Boys and Tivoli Gardens will meet in a top-of-the-table clash in Group A of the ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup competition today at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex, starting at 3:30 p.m.
The teams are locked on nine points apiece after three games in the preliminary stage. However, Wolmer's have scored 15 times with none against for a plus 15 goal difference. Tivoli have scored 10 times and also conceded none for a plus 10 goal difference.
Haile Selassie High and Kingston High have three points apiece, while the other teams in the group - Innswood High and Pembroke Hall are both without any point.
With that scenario it should be an interesting clash as the winner will take sole leadership of the group. Wolmer's are in hot form and touted as one of the early favourites for the Manning Cup title this year. Coach of Wolmer's, Rudolph Speid, said that the game is a huge one.
"Both teams have won their three games, and although it is early time, anybody who win tomorrow (today) will take control of the group," Speid told STAR Sports.
Speid also said that he will continue to use the rotation system as the plan is to give the footballers playing time during the preliminary stage.
Wolmer's key players include captain Rivaldo English who has netted three times and 15-year-old striker Revaldo Mitchell. Tivoli will look to collect maximum points at home. They have been performing well in winning all games played.
