FROME, Westmoreland — Sandals South Coast will be seeking to avenge their first-round loss when they take on FC Reno in the second Westmoreland derby of the Red Stripe Premier League season at Frome on Sunday, starting at 3:00pm.

The teams are at opposite ends of the tables, with FC Reno holding solid in the top half of the tables in fifth place on 21 points, and the promoted Sandals South Coast in 11th place on nine points and drifting backwards.

FC Reno had won the first-round game 2-1, but have drawn their last three games, while Sandals South Coast have lost their last two games, and four of their last five.

FC Reno gave up a 1-0 lead against Montego Bay United on Monday night and had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

At the end of the contest, coach Michael Graham voiced his frustration about the team giving up “silly goals”.

“This is what has been happening to this team all season. We always create and score chances, and then let in silly goals at times,” Graham lamented.

“This is one of our main problems; this is what has been plaguing the team all season.”

Craig Foster had given FC Reno the lead on Monday night with his seventh goal of the season, scoring more than half of his team's 12 goals, and he will lead the team against Sandals South Coast on Sunday.

Sandals have struggled from their first game in the Premier League with just two wins, both against Boys' Town, scoring a league low seven goals in 14 games, and conceding a joint league high of 24.

Form can be thrown out the window when teams meet in derbies, however, and Sandals South Coast will be desperate for another win against FC Reno, who seem to be slowing down, and finding goals harder to come by.
