He has promised to improve on his accuracy in front of goal to pull Boys’ Town out of the bottom half of the table.”We are not pleased with the position that we are in. We should have been up more, but we need to score more,” he added.Boys’ Town were the better team in the first-half but wasted their chances. Six minutes into the second-half they were made to pay when Burke dribbled fired a low shot past goalkeeper Kirk Porter.With just over ten minutes to go King broke away and calmly slotted past Marlon Henry for the equaliser.Other results: UWI FC 1 (Deno Schaffe 38th) Waterhouse 0; Cavalier 2 (Donovan Alvaranga 33rd, Nicholas Hamilton 62nd) Portmore United 1 (Mallique Foster 80th).
