After a substandard start to the season which at one point had Montego Bay United close to the relegation zone, the outfit from the Second City is now looking to cement themselves in the playoffs.

On Sunday, they travelled to third-place Tivoli Gardens and carved out a hard-fought victory to secure three vital points to their cause of making the play-offs. Their latest win, their fourth in five games, saw them retain fifth position with 40 points.

The scorer of the lone goal, Lesly St Fleur, said it was a tough game in which his team never really got going but nevertheless he expressed happiness at the result.

"I would say I started out slow in what was an on-and-off game, but thankfully I put away the free kick that gave my team the three points so I'm happy for that."

The 28-year-old Bahamian representative said that this game was very important.

"This game meant a lot to us, as we are fighting to keep our place in the top six," he said.

St Fleur expressed the view that his team is remaining realistic in their fight for the playoffs, but insisted that no one should take their eyes off Montego Bay United.

"Well, the leaders are out of sight for us now, but we have to keep working to get as close as we can. Third is a more realistic target, so that's what we are going for.

"You may ask what our goal for the rest of the season is, and all I can say is to look out for MoBay United," the little magician said.
