Real buzz in TG - Night games return to Edward Seaga Complex

Tivoli Gardens FC coach, Omar Edwards, says the return of night games to the Edward Seaga Complex, after an extended break, will be a source of inspiration and motivation for his players when they step out against Humble Lion in their mid-week Red Stripe Premier League fixture at the Edward Seaga Complex this evening at 7 o'clock.

The west Kingston-based club has not played a night game at home since 2013 and Edwards, who has never coached a home game under lights said there was a real buzz around training in anticipation of today's night fixture.

"Today's game will mark the return of night games under lights at the venue and this has lifted the mood at the club and the players are looking forward to it.

"We have had some training sessions under the lights and the players are very motivated so I am hoping for a good game," he said.

Tivoli lead the league with 16 points, two more than Portmore United and Mount Pleasant Academy on 14 points each, and Edwards anticipates a tough encounter from the in-form Humble Lion who have two wins from their last two games.

"Humble Lion started the season badly but have been gaining some momentum. They are on a high just now and we are looking to bring our 'A' game so we can get the best result possible. They possess good quality players but we want to continue what we are doing, which is to maintain our winning form and stay on top of the league," he said

"Humble Lion play with a very mobile midfield and it will be our responsibility to not only play well in defence but also in the middle of the pitch, and when we create our chances we must be able to capitalise on them," Edwards added.
