Western Bureau:

The 2010/11 Captain's Bakery Western Super League mid-season final between Seba United and Wadadah FC, which was slated for last Sunday but was postponed because of heavy rain in Montego Bay, will be played at Jarrett Park this evening at 8 o'clock following the Under-17 game between Jamaica and the United States.

"We need to get this mid-season final out of the way as quickly as possible so we have decided to play it following the game between Jamaica and the United States," said Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) Western Confederation boss, Linnel McLean. "As we see it, the situation will be ideal for such a game."

Seba the favourites

While both teams are enjoying pretty decent seasons, the unbeaten Danilo Barrigo-coached Seba United, having handed Wadadah their only defeat of the season, should start favourites. However, Wadadah who are having their best season in recent years, should be gunning to avenge that loss.

"We have been putting in the work in training and the players are fully committed so we are a confident unit," said Wadadah's coach Daniel Rickettes.

For Seba United, coach Barriga believes his team is measuring up to expectation and are on course to top the competition, which would see them earning qualification for 2011/12 Digicel Premier League qualifying competition.

"At the start of the season, we said we would like to complete the competition unbeaten and after 10 games, we are still unbeaten," said coach Barigga.

In their last set of games prior to the break for the mid-season final, Seba United, behind goals from Kemar James (two) and Dwayne Ambersley, turned in a smart performance in defeating Tomorrow's People 3-1 to keep their place atop the standings in the twelve-team competition on 26 points.
