Boys' Town will seek to at least maintain their four-goal advantage against Police National when both teams meet in the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) Yellow Pages Jackie Bell KO Round of 16 second-leg football game at Collie Smith Drive today.

Other games on are: Olympic Gardens vs Tivoli Gardens at Cling Cling Oval and Barbican vs Bull Bay at Barbican. All three games start at 3 p.m.

Boys' Town, which campaign in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL), are heavily favoured to advance to the next round in the Corporate Area knockout competition as they hold a 5-1 lead.

Premier League contenders Tivoli Gardens hold a slim 1-0 lead over Olympic Gardens.

In the day's other game, Barbican and Bull Bay are tied at 1-1.

The knockout competition continues tomorrow with two games. Defending champions Arnett Gardens host Santos at Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex, starting at 6 p.m., while Rockfort challenge the University of the West Indies at Rockfort, with game time set for 3 p.m.

The first-leg game between Arnett and Santos at Bell Chung playing field was not played last Thursday because of home team Santos' refusal to contest the game. The KSAFA Competitions Committee is yet to make a ruling.

And, the KSAFA Jamaica Yellow Pages Jackie Bell KO Round of 16 concludes on Thursday with three games. The full fixture reads: Harbour View vs Mountain View at Harbour View Stadium, starting at 3 p.m.; Waterhouse vs Whitfield at Waterhouse Stadium, beginning at 6 p.m.; and Cavalier vs Maxfield at Stadium East, starting at 3 p.m.
