Marcano tricks Sando, as Central move within three points of Pro League title

With just three games left in the 2015/16 season, Central rookie coach Dale Saunders is just three points away from his first Pro League title. And it carries a million dollar purse.

It will be Central’s second successive league trophy too.

The Sharks had a few hiccups recently and their cup form has been erratic. Bank on Central in the league though.

The dreadlocked Marcano led the way with a 35th item and two more after the interval for a natural hattrick while attacker Kadeem Corbin got Central’s fourth, three minutes into stoppage time.

Club Sando got a consolation item from tigerish midfielder Akeem Humphrey in the 70th minute.

All eyes will be on DIRECTV W Connection and Morvant Caledonia United on Sunday, as they contest the Lucozade Sport Goal Shield final from 6 pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

Central have one hand on the big trophy though.
