CLARK'S TOWN, Trelawny — Cedric Titus High and Little London, leaders in their respective zones, are hoping to at least maintain their positions today when they kick off their return- round games in the ISSA/Wata daCosta Cup football competition.

Cedric Titus High, who leads Zone C, seek to avenge their loss to Muschett High in the opening round, while Zone D joint leaders Little London host Knockalva Technical.

In another game, Mannings School are itching to snap a three-game winless run, when they face newcomers Belmont Academy at Sandals South Coast.

Cedric Titus have reeled off three consecutive wins since they were ambushed by Muschett High in Wakefield and desperately want to repay the favour today.

Games between the two have been close since Cedric Titus moved to Zone C in 2016. three of their five games played ended in draws, while Cedric Titus won 2-0 at home last year.

The win by Muschett High over Cedric Titus was their first in the daCosta Cup competition since September 22, 2016.

Seven points separate both teams — Cedric Titus on 12 and Muschett High in fourth place on five points.

Little London trail Zone D leaders Petersfield on goal difference, but are just two points ahead of a confident Knockalva Technical team coming off a 4-0 win over Belmont Academy.

Mannings School hope to continue Belmont's misery as they seek their second win after winning their first meeting 4-1 in Savnanna-la-Mar.

Since then, Manning's have managed just one point from their last three games and must win today to stay in the race for one of the two second round spots.
