ollowing a bruising 1-0 defeat to Boys’

Town FC at Collie Smith on Wednesday, all

be it their first in 11 Red Stripe Premier

League games, assistant coach Linval Wilson

quickly pointed out that Humble Lion FC

remains undaunted.

With that defeat coming at the struggling

Boys’ Town, they currently sit fifth on the table,

and are still hopeful of a top four finish.

“We have lost before and faced tough situ-

to move away from excuses and keep our

focus on playing good football,” Wilson

warned of his players, who he added will

bounce back.

Humble Lion currently have two players:

Devon Hodges and Jermaine Christian who

have scored six times, but will need to work on

their goal scoring form, given they have netted

24 goals, while conceding 21 so far.
