Head coach of last-place Boys' Town FC, Andrew Price, is fully aware that his side is in a must-win game against Montego Bay United (MBU) in the Red Stripe Premier League tomorrow at the Barbican Complex, at 3 p.m.

Boys' Town is in the cellar position on 14 points from 23 games, while MBU sit in an unfamiliar 10th position on 24 points.

With that scenario, Boys' Town, which shared points in a 1-1 draw with Humble Lion last Sunday, cannot afford to drop points. MBU will also hunt full points to climb away from danger.

Boys' Town have brought in attackers such as Jermaine 'Tuffy' Anderson, Andre Dawson, Bebeto McDonald and Javaughn Mitchell during the transfer window to boost the team.

"We won't be doing any more shopping. We will stick with the players brought in to keep us out of relegation. We are showing a good amount of fight, so it is about concentrating for 90 minutes plus. We have to start winning games," Price said during a RSPL press conference at the Jamaica Football Federation offices in New Kingston on Thursday.

The Red Brigade will be without Jamiel Hardware, who is away on national duty in Turkey.

Lincoln White, MBU's director of communication, said that striker Dino Williams will be in the line-up for the crucial fixture.

"Dino will delay surgery to play because the team is in a precarious position. He is fighting to get fit and ready to play in order to help the team in the league, Dino is willing to fight and score goals to take us out of the current situation. The last match at Boys' Town, he missed a couple chances but come Sunday he will be ready," White shared.

"At WesPow (Park), we have a problem with rains because we are in a valley. But the weather has being good this week, so that is a positive for us in the preparation, We are ready to go," he added.

MBU will also be without Owayne Gordon and Ladale Richie who travelled with the Reggae Boyz for the international friendly against South Korea in Turkey.
