Isa­iah Hud­son and Gem Gor­don were both on tar­get to lead reign­ing ti­tle-hold­ers W Con­nec­tion to a 2-0 vic­to­ry AC Port-of-Spain in the lone 2019/2020 T&T Pro League match at the Ato Boldon Sta­di­um in Cou­va on Fri­day.

The vic­to­ry lift­ed six-time cham­pi­ons W Con­nec­tion to 24 points from 15 match­es, the same as fourth-placed Mor­vant Cale­do­nia Unit­ed but with a su­pe­ri­or goal-dif­fer­ence of plus-five to plus-two, while Po­lice FC and Pt Fortin Civic are next with 23 and 22 points from 16 and 15 match­es re­spec­tive­ly.

At Cou­va on Fri­day, the “Savonet­ta Boys” had to wait un­til the 42nd minute to take the lead in the 42nd minute against stub­born AC Port-of-Spain, and 20 min­utes in­to the sec­ond-half Gem Gor­don dou­bled the ad­van­tage for W Con­nec­tion, which they took to the fi­nal whis­tle.

On Sat­ur­day night, Pt Fortin Civic and Mor­vant Cale­do­nia Unit­ed both had chances to move ahead of W Con­nec­tion as they clashed at Ma­haica Oval, while three match­es are on the sched­ule Sun­day with ti­tle-favourites De­fence Force fac­ing Po­lice FC in the fea­ture match of a dou­ble-head­er at Cou­va from 6 pm.

Cur­rent­ly, three-time T&T Pro League cham­pi­ons and 18-time na­tion­al league win­ners De­fence Force leads the 11-team ta­ble with 38 points from 15 match­es and needs on­ly sev­en points from their re­main­ing five match­es to claim yet an­oth­er league crown.

How­ev­er, Po­lice FC, who have al­ready claimed the First Cit­i­zens Cup, the first ti­tle up for grabs this sea­son, will have their eyes set on up­set­ting their pro­tec­tive ser­vice ri­vals while im­prov­ing their am­bi­tions for a top-two fin­ish.

Two hours ear­li­er at Cou­va, low­ly Cen­tral FC and Cunu­pia FC will do bat­tle while in the oth­er match on to­day, sev­enth-placed Tiger Tanks Club San­do en­ter­tains sec­ond-placed Ter­minix La Hor­quet­ta Rangers, who have to 29 points from 15 match­es.
