FOOTBALL: Premier League continues today

Published:Monday | September 29, 2014 | 3:05 PM

The Red Stripe Premier League, which has been seriously affected by the spread of the chikungunya virus, continues today with the third match of Match Day 4.



Only two matches were scheduled for yesterday as a number of teams have been having issues with the chikungunya virus.



Today's match features Boys Town against Humble Lion at the Anthony Spaulding Complex.



Boys' Town are making a return to the competition after their squad was depleted last week as a number of players had contracted the chikungunya virus.



The game is scheduled to start at 9 p.m.



Both  teams are struggling in the early part of the season and have only tallied a point from three games.



The teams are seven points behind Cavalier, who beat defending champions Montego Bay United 1-0 yesterday to move atop the points’ table.



The game was played at the Stadium East field.



Cavalier, who are on eight points, hold a one-point lead over Arnett Gardens, who did not honour their away fixture against Reno yesterday.



The Arnett Gardens squad was last week depleted as a result of the chikungunya virus.



Only one other game was played yesterday due to issues related to the chikungunya virus.



In that game, Rivoli United scored an away 3-2 victory against Tivoli Gardens for their first victory of the season.
