Barbican's Andrew Christie says his 'important' goal against Wadadah yesterday has pushed his team close to a return to the Red Stripe Premier League.

Christie netted the goal in the 16th minute to lift Barbican to eight points from four games in the Magnum/Charley's JB/JFF Premier League promotion play-off series.

Barbican are joint leaders alongside Dunbeholden, who have a better goal difference.

"First and foremost. I want to give thanks for the victory. It was more important to win the game than me scoring. The three points were really needed," Christie told STAR Sports after the game.

"We won't turn back as the Red Stripe Premier League is the goal. Come the next match, we need another positive result," the former Portmore United and Tivoli Gardens Premier League player shared.

He said his team has good individual players but needs to play more as a unit.

"The team is not playing to its true potential. Hopefully, we can gel and get back in the Premier League. The play-off is very competitive," he added.

"I had an injury and was out for one year because of that, and also my job commitments. I, however, decided to return to Barbican to give them a hand in returning to the Premier League," the former St Andrew Technical High Manning Cup football star shared.
