It will be interesting to see how both teams handle pressure. For the record Kandy SC has won all their matches at Nittawela this season. Today they are all to dash the hopes of the Havelock SC players. The Park Club players have been at their best and beat the sailors in their last outing and have remained unbeaten.
Kandy SC certainly has a dynamic side. They will also have the home advantage. But this is a season which has produced many upsets. Even champions Kandy SC succumbed under pressure. But one should never forget that Kandy SC has the rare ability of rising to the occasion. This is indeed a big game for both teams.
The pressure will be on Kandy SC because they are the favourites at this venue. All in all a good game is expected and the better team on the day will come out as the winner.
