Humble Lion FC striker Craig Foster said that although he is just one goal behind Arnett Gardens' Fabian Reid in the goalscorers charts, on 15, he is not too focused on whether he overtakes him. Foster said that this is because his main focus at the moment is getting the Clarendon based team into the playoff round of the Red Stripe Premier League.

"Yes it (golden boot) crosses my mind but I'm a person that doesn't really like thinking about something I need to get. I know he (Reid) is just right there. I can just past him in the blink of an eye, but I just want to let it happen, than to put myself under the pressure of trying to pass him," said Foster.

Humble Lion currently sits in eighth place on the 12 team table with 39 points, just two outside the closest playoff spot.

When asked about his recent form, Foster told STAR Sports it took some time for him and the team to find the right blend.

"Humble Lion's style of football is totally different from what I was used to over the years at Reno, so it took some time for me to fit into the system of play. The team also understands now more of how I play, than when I just came in. It is much better now that they know exactly how and where I want the ball, so I think it is going to be easier for me going forward, than before," Foster said.
