Fireworks are expected later today at the Spanish Town Prison Oval when hosts Rivoli and New Green of Manchester meet in the second-leg final of the South Central Confed Super League.

Match time is 3 p.m.

New Green are first-time finalists at this level, while Rivoli are the defending champions. At stake is a single berth to represent the region in the four-team JFF National Premier League play-offs.

New Green enter today's decider with a 1-0 lead after the first leg at Brooks Park, and require just a draw. Today will mark the fourth meeting between the teams, with all previous three ending in 1-0 margins. New Green have won two.

New Green's coach, André Swaby, is confident that they will bring back Confed glory to the parish of Manchester for the first time since 2004. That year, Los Perfectos won, but were edged out by KSAFA champions Boys' Town in the Premier League play-offs.
