The top-of-the-zone clash between Reggae Youths and Beaches Negril at Long Bay Beach Park will highlight today's set of games in the Jamaica Football Federation Western Confederation/Charley's JB Rum Super League.

The Zone One teams are tied on seven points after three games, and today's winners will get a leg up in the race for the mid-season final.

Zone Two leaders Faulkland FC will be away to Clark's Town at Cedric Titus High, while third-placed Wadadah FC will be away to Roaring River FC. In another game, former champions Granville United meet Grand Palladium FC at Collin Miller Sports Complex in Lucea.

Three of the four games between Reggae Youths and Beaches Negril have ended in tied scorelines and both teams will be coming into the game on a high.

Reggae Youths, led by the competition's top scorer Shanoy Anderson with four goals, have scored eight times to Beaches Negril's three, but the latter team holds the advantage in defence as Beaches Negril have allowed just two goals to Reggae Youths' four.

Both games between the teams played in Long Bay have ended in draws, but Reggae Youths won 2-0 when they met in Montego Bay last season.

Faulkland FC have been flying, with only a draw against Wadadah FC blemishing their record so far. They lead the entire league with 10 goals.

Today they face a Clark's Town team that has yet to sparkle, scoring just three goals in three games. Clark's Town are six points behind the St James-based team but have played one game fewer.

The Faulkland FC team is packed with goalscorers with six players finding the net so far led by Ronaldo McLeish's three and Peter Campbell, Radcliff Dawkins and Allan Ottey, all with two goals each.

Wadadah FC are coming off back-to-back drawn games after a big opening win and will play promoted Roaring River for the first time in a contest at Petersfield Community Centre.
