Group D leaders Haile Selassie are proving to be this year’s Cinderella team and in their last outing stopped former champions Bridgeport 2-0 on Friday to follow up on their 2-1 win over Papine. The Michael Williams led team, who lead the table with 9 points, will be seeking a 4th straight win but face tough opposition in the form of second place Camperdown who have won both their games to be on 6 points.
