AC Port of Spain, coached by Walt Noriega, are one place and one point off the foot of the table—after a run of form that saw them winless in eight successive matches. Their last win came on 28 January 2020 when they edged Tiger Tanks Club Sando 1-0.

Noriega’s troops, who include former national youth team captain John-Paul Rochford and current National Under-20 midfielder Rivaldo Coryat, may need another result to avoid finishing last. AC’s final three matches this season are against Police FC, Club Sando and Morvant Caledonia United.

Cellar placed Cunupia FC, who will overtake AC on goal difference once both teams are level on points, face W Connection FC from 6pm today at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva. Cunupia’s last three matches are against: Point Fortin Civic, San Juan Jabloteh and Terminix La Horquetta Rangers.
