Adam’s Construction San Juan Jabloteh and Neal & Massy Caledonia AIA will both have their eyes set of claiming sole possession of top spot in the Digicel T&T Pro League when matches resume today. Currently, T&TEC leads the eight-team standing on goal-difference from former champions Jabloteh, last year’s runner-up Caledonia and another past multiple champion, W Connection, with all four clubs on 15 points each. However, today, of the top four, only Jabloteh and Caledonia, both coming off victories on the weekend will be in action today. Jabloteh, which is coming off a morale lifting 2-0 win over bitter-rival, W Connection on Friday night at the Larry Gomes Stadium, Malabar tackles Police at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva from 6pm. After a slow start to the season, Jabloteh led by striker Willis Plaza five goals has marched its way up the table and will have chance for its first outright lead tonight.

On the other hand, the Lawmen who have only played three matches this season after a late start due to their involvement in the State Of Emergency, were beaten 3-1 by Caledonia on Saturday. At the Larry Gomes Stadium, Malabar, Caledonia riding a wave of seven straight competitive victories, four in the Pro League and three enroute to capturing the 22nd Kashif & Shanghai Football Tournament with a 2–0 win over Pele FC at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence on New Year’s Day faces a tougher test in defending league champion, Defence Force. It will be the second meeting of the season between Caledonia and Defence Force so far this season. In their first clash which marked the Teteron Boys return to competition after the State of Emergency was lifted on December 5, they went under 3-2 with former striker Devorn Jorsling, scoring the winner in the 67th minute in his first match for his home-town club.
