Three changes to Reggae Boyz team to face Haiti

Three changes have been made to Jamaica's starting line-up as they get ready to face Haiti in a crucial CONCACAF semi-final round FIFA World Cup qualifier at the Stade Sylvio Cator in Port-Au-Prince starting at 7:00pm today.

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Lee Williamson will make his second appearance for the Reggae Boyz, replacing captain Rudolph Austin, who along with striker Giles Barnes, opted to sit out the game, which is being played on an artificial surface due to the possible effects on their problematic knees.

Clayton Donaldson (Birmingham City), who came on as a second half substitute in Jamaica's 0 - 2 defeat to Panama at the National Stadium last Friday, will start as the team's main reference point up front, with wide man Demar Phillips also coming into the starting 11.

Adrian Mariappa will wear the captain's armband in Austin's absence.

Haiti lost their opening group fixture 0 - 1 playing away to Costa Rica on Friday.
