Albion Mountain will host St Georges at St Mary Sports Club, in the second-leg of their Magnum Eastern Confederation Super League semi-final on Saturday at 3:00 pm.
Albion Mountain hold a huge 3-0 away lead, which they acquired from the first-leg on Sunday, through first-half goals by Joseph Boota, Michael Stewart and Rajae Hinds.
Head coach of Albion Mountain, Lincoln Small is looking to pressure his opponents early, to diminish whatever hopes they have of changing the situation.
Small said, “we will approach the game as if it’s the first-leg semi-final. So, we will have to start pressing from the get-go and search for an early goal, because we know they will be coming at us early.
“Our training sessions all of this week, have been geared towards getting an early goal. We should have beaten them at least 5-0 at their home. We will just take the game like any other, fight hard and see what the result will be like,” Small said.
His counterpart, Marlon Russell of St Georges blames their loss last week on injury to his goalkeeper early in the game, as well as off-the-field problems, but believe that despite all what has transpired, his Portland-based outfit is capable of turning things around.
Russell said, “if one team could score three in one half, you cannot give up. We still have 90 minutes and I can guarantee that it won’t be the easiest 90 minutes Albion Mountain will go up against.”
The teams are battling to win the Magnum Eastern Confederation Super League and the possibility of earning a place in the Red Stripe Premier League. All four Confederations champions will challenge for two spots in the Red Stripe Premier League.
