Dunbeholden's head coach, Michael 'Richie' Cohen, is highly confident that his team will continue to dominate home turf when they meet Barbican in a crucial clash in the Magnum/Charley's JB/JFF Premier League promotion play-off series at Dunbeholden Complex on Sunday at 4 p.m.

Both teams are locked at the top the four-team standing on eight points apiece after four games. But the Portmore-based team has the slight edge with a better goal difference.

With two rounds of games remaining, both teams are in good positions to qualify for next season's Red Stripe Premier League. Mount Pleasant, who are on five points, remain in contention, while Wadadah are out of contention without a point.

 

HOME GAMES

 

"Coming into the Premier League play-off, it is always our aim to win all three home games and get a point on the road whenever we travel. We have won two of the homes games and picked up two points on the road, so we are on course," Cohen told STAR Sports yesterday.

"We have the same mentality going into the game against Barbican on Sunday. We know that Barbican will be challenging, but we expect to win at home. The crowd support has been very overwhelming and the team is motivated to make the dream of playing in the Premier League come through," he added.

"The guys will just continue to work for each other as we believe in teamwork. It will be a very tough game as I think Barbican will do the math and come for at least a draw," Cohen said.
