FC Santa Rosa will be looking to keep their title hopes when the penultimate round of matches, in League One, of the Trinidad and Tobago Super League takes place today.
But Guaya United can clinch the 2017 trophy today depending on if the results work in their favour.
Guaya United will be travelling to the sister isle Tobago to face 1976 Phoenix FC at the Canaan/Bon Accord Recreation Ground from 5 pm, while Santa Rosa are set to oppose Police at the Arima Velodrome from 3.30 pm.
If Guaya defeat Phoenix, and Santa Rosa fail to defeat the lawmen, then the 2017 crown will be heading to the south-eastern peninsula. Any other turn of events will mean that the title will be decided on the final day of action on December 10.
Other games on today’s agenda include Cunupia FC against Bethel United at the Larry Gomes Stadium, Arima; Club Sando Moruga versus Defence Force at the Grand Chemin Recreation Ground in Moruga (both starting at 3.30 pm); and WASA versus Siparia Spurs at the WASA Ground, St Joseph (beginning at 4.30 pm).
The clash between the University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT) and Queen’s Park, which was originally scheduled for the UTT O’Meara Campus Ground, Arima today, has been pushed to 8pm on Tuesday.
In related news, there were a pair of rescheduled matches, in the sister isle Tobago, on Thursday. In the first game of a double-header at the Canaan/Bon Accord Recreation Ground, 1976 Phoenix FC battled to a 3-2 win over WASA FC. Dominique Kerr (14th), Andel Noray (64th) and Lejandro Williams (85th) were on target for the hosts, while former national midfielder Gary Glasgow (72nd) and Dwight Crichlow (90th) were the goal-getters for WASA.
And in a battle of the table proppers, Bethel United swapped places with Siparia Spurs courtesy of a 3-0 win by default.
