If Cavalier's Chevone 'Messi' Marsh lives up to his own high expectations against Tivoli Gardens in their Red Stripe Premier League quarter-final first-leg at the Anthony Spaulding Complex on Sunday, then Tivoli are going to be in for a very tough evening.

Marsh promises "great things" and says his track record this season has proven that he is a real goal threat and tomorrow he plans to lead from the front as captain in their bid to gain an advantage for a place in the semi-finals.

"This is our first time in the playoffs and it's a tremendous feeling. The group is very happy and motivated, and you can expect great things from me and my teammates, top players Alex Marshall, Kaheem Parris, Paul Wilson, and Nicholas Hamilton. The team looks up to me as the captain, so I have to go out and display my ultimate best," Marsh said.

He has scored nine goals and has 12 assists from midfield, a contribution he is very pleased with, and he is looking to add more goals to his tally come the playoffs.

"I am still eyeing the top-scorer award, so I am working harder. Every day. I come to training and do extra work on my shooting. Now is the time that goals are going to matter, and we want to win the two legs and go to the semi-finals."

Even though they have a very young squad, he believes that they have enough experience in the team.

"If you check all the teams in the playoffs, we demolished them at some time during the season, so it's who comes good on the day. At our best, we beat any team. Tivoli cannot stop us from scoring. So if we can prevent them from scoring we are going to wrap up the tie from first leg," a confident Marsh said.
