Title-holders, Central FC will hope to shrug off
its rust when it kicks off defence of its First Citizens
Cup against Pt Fortin Civic in the feature match of
a quarterfinal double-header at the Ato Boldon Sta-
dium, Couva from 8pm.
Two hours earlier at the same venue, record six-
time (2001, 2004, 2005, 2006. 2007 & 2008) winners
DirecTV W Connection meet qualifying round giant-
killers San Juan Jabloteh for the first spot up for grabs
in the semifinal carded for Friday october 24.
On Saturday, the remaining quarterfinals will take
place as another double-header, at the Marvin Lee
Stadium, Macoya with Police FC facing St Ann s
Rangers from 5pm followed by two-time (2011 & 2012)
winners Caledonia AIA tackling Japs North East Stars
For Central FC, tonight s match could not have
come any sooner as it has been idle since its 7-0
Digicel T&T Pro League hammering of St Ann s Rangers
on the opening day of the season on September 25.
However, a trio of its players, Ataulla Guerra, Leston
Paul and Jan-Michael Williams were all part of the
T&T team which topped its Caribbean Football Union
Cup Group Seven semifinal round qualifiers last week-
end and together with veteran leader Marvin Oliver,
Jean-Luc Rochford, Dwight Quintero, Kaydion Gabriel
and Sean De Silva, should pose too much for their
Speaking at the launch of the tournament, De Silva
said "We are definitely very eager to defend this title
especially being the first one; being very meaningful
and very important to the club."
The 24-year-old De Silva, who joined Central during
last season s December/January transfer window and
was part of the team that won the Lucozade Sport
Goal Shield and finished runners-up in the Digicel
Pro League, added, "The dream is to retain that (First
Citizens Cup) number one spot all the way till the
end. We are definitely more than capable to go all the
way and defend the title. We are favourites [being]
the defending title holders."
Pt Fortin, on the otherhand have not tasted victory
for the season after losing both Pro League matches
to date, against Defence Force (0-1) and North East
Stars (1-3), the last being on Friday October 3 and will
no doubt be eager to send the title holders packing.
Another coach looking for his team to play spoilers
is Jabloteh s Keith Jeffrey after disposing of last year s
beaten finalist Defence Force 3-2 on penalty-kicks
following a 1-1 draw in Tuesday s qualifier at Macoya.
Now faced with a daunting task of getting past W
Connection, which is yet to play a match this season,
Jeffrey sounded positive about his team s chances.
"I have a fair idea of what W Connection does
so our system will change for W Connection relative
to the game on Friday."
He added, "We know the pinnacle is when we are
against W Connection. We want to be victorious. All
players must try to achieve against the best team in
the land, and the best team in the land is W Connection.
It is an opportunity for the present Jabloteh players
to show if they can compete at W Connection s level."
Jeffrey added that Jabloteh s ambition is to be suc-
cessful in the 2014-2015 and to return the club onto
the pedestal as one of the top teams in T&T.
