Defending Blink/bMobile National Super League (NSL) champions WASA FC will try to rebound from a 2-0 opening day loss to Club Sando tomorrow afternoon as football action resumes in five Trinidad venues.
WASA makes a short trip from St Joseph to the Marvin Lee Stadium in Macoya tomorrow to tackle Joe Public from 4 pm. Public was held goalless last weekend at the same venue against newly promoted Guaya United.
Guaya is at home at the Guaya Recreation Ground today where it will host Tobago outfit Stokely Vale FC from 3.30 pm. Vale edged Defence Force 2-1 on Wednesday and will hope to maintain its momentum on what should be a tough road trip.
It is one of three south Trinidad fixtures today as Club Sando hosts Malabar FC at Guaracara Park, Pointe-a-Pierre and the Siparia Spurs outfit welcomes Defence Force to the Palo Seco Veledrome in Palo Seco. The Palo Seco and Guaracara Park games both kick off at 4 pm.
The final weekend fixture will be staged in north-west Trinidad as the Westside Superstarz team is at home again on the St Anthony’s College Ground where it will face Bethel United. The Superstarz romped to a 3-0 win on Wednesday against 1976 FC Phoenix thanks to a double from Under-20 World Cup forward Qian Grosvenor.
FC Santa Rosa is on a bye for this round while a clash between Phoenix and Real Maracas has been postponed.
