Must-win for Milan
After playing?in the highest division for two decades, Youth Milan’s future in the Digicel Premier League could be sealed at the Wildey Football AstroTurf tonight.
The struggling Checker Hall, St Lucy-based side will oppose dethroned champions Weymouth Wales in their penultimate match of the season at 8 p.m.
With just nine points from 16 matches so far, Youth Milan, who were promoted to the top flight in 1993 and won the Premiership title in 2006, are in a must-win situation as anything less would mean demotion to Division One next year.
But for Milan to survive, they must first win their last two games to move to 15 points, the same tally which both Cosmos and Dayrells Road now have.
Then, they must hope that the results in the last two matches involving Families First St John Sonnets, Cosmos and Dayrells Road go in their favour.
This would mean that Sonnets must defeat both Cosmos and Dayrells Road. Then Cosmos and Dayrells Road would also have to lose their other match to the Barbados Defence Force and Notre Dame respectively.
DirecTV?Paradise and Claytons Kola Tonic Notre Dame will clash at 6 in tonight’s other Premiership match.
The evening’s action will kick off with the rescheduled third-round KFC Champions Cup knockout match between Pride of Gall Hill and Blackspurs at 3:30 p.m.
Gall Hill had appealed the Barbados Football Association decision to award the match, originally scheduled for Briar Hall on May 18, to Blackspurs on a technicality without a ball being kicked.
The matter was referred to the Barbados Olympic Association for arbitration and on Friday, the BOA ordered that the match be played, after hearing evidence the previous day. (EZS)
