Reigning ISSA/Flow Manning Cup champions Jamaica College (JC) will be aiming for their second consecutive victory over rivals Kingston College (KC) when both teams meet in today's eagerly anticipated semi-final of the ISSA/Flow Super Cup competition at Sabina Park.

JC will enter today's contest oozing confidence, having defeated KC 2-1 in the final of this year's Walker Cup Knockout competition.

The Miguel Coley-coached team, which will again be led by inspirational attacking midfielder Tyreek Magee, booked a spot in the semis of the Super Cup with an exciting 3-2 victory over Dinthill Technical in the quarter-finals in Montego Bay last week.

Ian Forbes, manager of JC, said that they are expecting a much tougher game from their opponents today.

"We are looking forward to it because we have prepared well, and we are expecting a competitive and tough game," said Forbes.

 

TRAINED WELL

 

"We are confident in our abilities because we have trained well, and as long as we go out there and execute our game plan, then we are expecting to get a positive result," Forbes said.

He added that despite their confidence, they are not going to take their opponents lightly because they have also been playing well this season.

"Every team that we go up against, we expect a strong challenge, and so it doesn't matter who we play, they are all coming hard at us, but we are prepared for whatever challenge that might come in this game," Forbes said.

"We are hoping to go out there and execute our game plan as best as possible and ensure that we come out on top," he said.
