Reno seek maximum points against tough Boys’ Town

first_img SLOW START “I believe that we are slowly coming into our own after a slow start, mainly because of players being overseas and playing in the Business House competition. We have had the entire group together, now for about a month, so we are gelling now. Once we stay together, we can put ourselves in the top half of the league and stay there. It is about consistency now,” he said. Boys’ Town’s chances will not be helped by the fact that Xavian Virgo will again be missing because of an ankle injury, but the improved play of Shamar Nicholson should be a plus. Reno, meanwhile, will be boosted by the return of attacker Renorio Downswell. Tomorrow’s game Today’s Games Standings After getting off to a fast pace at the beginning of the season and even topping the table for a while, former champions Reno spent a good part of the first round looking up at teams such as leaders Montego Bay United and Portmore United, a thing they will have to address in the second round. That is the view expressed by the Westmoreland team’s technical director, Wendell Downswell, who will lead his six-placed team into battle against eighth-placed Boys’ Town and Barbican today. “Traditionally, Boys’ Town are a tough team and very difficult to beat, and I don’t suppose their approach will be any different,” said Downswell, who starred for the club as a player. But even while he expects Boys’ Town to be at their best, the successful national youth coach is of the view that playing at Barbican could be beneficial to his team. “The fact that we are playing at Barbican may neutralise things a little bit, but we are hell bent on getting the three points when we meet them,” Downswell declared. While their recent results do not translate to dominance, Downswell said that will change soon. “We had some injuries, causing some of our key players to be out. We are getting them back now, so you will see the result of that. “Our issue now is the goalscoring. That is one of the things we are placing emphasis on. We have been spending quite a lot of time on that on the training ground. We have to fix that going into the next round,” Downswell explained. Boys’ Town also intend to make a statement of their own after steadily inching their way out of the relegation zone. “It is an important game. At the midpoint of the first round, we said that our objective was to get 15 points, so it is important that we win this game to achieve that,” said Andrew Price, Boys’ Town head coach. Rafeik Thomas has been one of their best players so far, and Price believes that other players are getting fit and contributing more to the team. – 3:00 p.m. Boys’ Town vs Reno at Barbican Stadium – 3:00 p.m. Portmore United vs Arnett Gardens at Juici Park Clarendon – 4:00 p.m. Rivoli United vs Montego Bay United at Drax Hall, St Ann – 3:00 p.m. UWI FC vs Tivoli Gardens at UWI Bowl, Mona – 3:00 p.m. Waterhouse vs Humble Lion at Drewsland Stadium – 8:40 p.m. Cavalier SC vs Harbour View FC at Stadium East Teams P W D L GF GA GD Pts MoBay Utd 10 6 3 1 22 9 13 21 Portmore 10 5 3 2 9 7 2 18 Humble Lion 10 5 3 2 8 6 2 18 Arnett 10 5 2 3 16 8 8 17 Tivoli 10 4 2 4 14 11 3 14 Reno 10 3 5 2 12 11 1 14 H.View 10 3 5 2 11 10 1 14 Boys’ Town 10 3 3 4 10 16 -6 12 Rivoli 10 3 1 6 8 12 -4 10 Cavalier 10 2 3 5 3 8 -5 9 UWI FC 10 2 3 5 6 15 -9 9 Waterhouse 10 2 1 7 6 14 -8 7last_img read more


first_imgDANIEL O’Donnell has vowed to find the dancer inside him after another great performance of Strictly Come Dancing.The Donegal man took to the floor – and hoping for votes for the first time – on the hit BBC show this evening.And he and partner Kristina Rihanoff did a cheeky Charleston…to cheer the crowd in the BBC studios. Judge Craig did have some criticisms of Daniel, but the singer was delighted when the acid-tongued judge insisted: “You have great rhythm…and I believe there is a dancer lurking inside.”Len said if he was a bookmaker, Daniel would be odds-on to appear again next week.And Darcey said Daniel and Kristina’s routine came alive!The star said he had been ‘horsing around’ this week as the dance had a racecourse them….and also revealed he had an outer body experience during the show last week!!! Afterwards he said he was delighted with Craig’s comments and vowed: “I promise to find that dancer inside me.“We had a great time this week doing the Charleston.”Here are the judges’ comments in full:JUDGES’ COMMENTSCraig Revel Horwood: “I think you need to be a lot higher up on your toes, more swivel, your free arm you need to look out for, and this dance is about going over the top – I don’t think you quite did that tonight. You have fantastic rhythm and there is a dancer lurking within”.Darcey Bussell: “For me, you had great energy throughout. Honestly, I was not expecting that – you had great bounce and you were alert”.Len Goodman: “It was a tad on the safe side, however, if I was a bookie, you are odds on to be back next week”.Bruno Tonioli: “You nearly placed at Ascot. You need more than a steady canter. You need to gallop all the time. You have got to keep it going – it is all about energy”SCORES Craig: 5 – Darcey: 6- Len: 6 – Bruno: 6TOTAL: 23DANIEL VOWS TO FIND THE DANCER ‘INSIDE’ AFTER GREAT PERFORMANCE was last modified: October 4th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:daniel o’donnellKristina RihanoffStrictly Come Dancinglast_img read more
