Morvant Caledonia United remain fourth in the TT Pro League, having missed the chance to move to second following Tuesday night’s 4-1 defeat to young San Juan Jabloteh, who have not won consecutive matches for most of the season.

Early goals from Malik Mieres (3’) and Delon Jaggasar (38’), along with two second-half penalties converted by Shakiyl Phillip (6’ & 89’) earned the San Juan Kings their fourth victory, adding to four earlier drawn games and five defeats this season.

Jabloteh have now beaten Police (3-2), Central FC (1-0), AC Port of Spain (5-2) and Caledonia (4-1) but they have also lost twice to Club Sando (1-0/5-0) and once each to La Horquetta Rangers (6-0), Central FC (3-1) and Caledonia (1-0).

Caledonia have been one of the better performing teams this season and previously, had suffered only one league defeat, when going down 4-2 to Club Sando. The Morvant squad are also the only ones to have defeated leaders Defence Force (2-1) this season.

Determined to avenge a 1-0 loss to the Eastern Stallions earlier in the campaign, Jabloteh got off to a flying start with Malik Mieres’ third-minute goal before Jaydon Taylor pulled Caledonia level at 1-1 in the 32nd minute. Delon Jaggasar then sent Jabloteh into the half-time break leading 2-1 when he struck in the 38th minute. The two second half penalties from Shakiyl Phillip, a former captain of the original St Ann’s Rangers, sealed a convincing victory for the San Juan side.

TT PRO LEAGUE RESULT:

San Juan Jabloteh 4 (Malik Mieres 3’, Delon Jaggasar 38’, Shakiyl Phillip 64’- penalty, 89’-penalty)

Morvant/Caledonia United 1 (Jaydon Taylor 32’)
