W Connection are finally getting into grove in the 2009 Digicel Pro League after a slow start while rivals and defending champions San Juan Jabloteh are losing grip.
W Connection are unbeaten in their last five matches following a 1-0 victory over Police FC on Tuesday afternoon at the Ato Boldon Stadium in a rescheduled Round Two Match Day Four clash.
The rescheduled matches are to facilitate W Connection and San Juan Jabloteh participation in the CONCACAF Champions’ League preliminary round stage.
Meantime current League leaders and bitter rivals San Juan Jabloteh suffered their second consecutive defeat going under 1-0 against the young blooded Ma Pau SC whose coaching staff includes former Jabloteh player and assistant coach Angus Eve.
Eve is assistant coach to Michael McComie at the Woodbrook based club but it was Tobagonian Trevin Caesar who punished Jabloteh in the 61st minute scoring the only item of the match.
Ma Pau didn’t move from their fifth position on the League standings but boosted their points to 16 following the rescheduled Round Two Match Day Four clash.
But they did enough to put a pause on Jabloteh who have failed to add points to their 20 at the top of the standings in their last two outings with their previous defeat being a 4-0 trashing against Joe Public.
Brazilian attacking wingback William Da Silva Oliveira scored the lone item in the 17th minute for the 2009 CFU Club Champions and Lucozade Sport Goal Shield champs W Connection against Police FC on Tuesday in their rescheduled Round Two Match Day Four fixture.
W Connection remain in fourth with 18 points—same as third positioned Joe Public (18 points)—that’s two points behind Jabloteh and one point less than second positioned Caledonia AIA of Morvant Laventille.
W Connection have already won two titles this season and it’s no suprise that Coach Stuart Charles Fevrier will be putting his all in hopes of capturing the 2009 League championship.
United Petrotrin are in sixth with 13 points, Defence Force seventh with 9 points, FC South End in eight with 9 points, St Ann’s Rangers ninth with 8 points, Police FC remain tenth with 8 points and Tobago United at the bottom with just 4 points.
