Jones vows to bang in the goals

Trinidad and Tobago captain Kenwyne Jones is backing his new club Al Jazira to climb the league table in the Arabian Gulf League and is vowing to start banging in the goals.

Jones was speaking after setting up his team’s second goal in a 2-2 draw at Al Wasl when he expressed his optimism about the club’s ability to improve on its run so far.

“I see enough room for progress, I don’t see any problem for this team,” Jones said. “They can progress easily. We just need to tighten up a few things and we’ll be fine.

“It’s like anywhere in the world. You have moments where you lose a bit of concentration and don’t do things to stay on top of the game. But it’s OK — I believe 100 per cent in this team, we have a lot of talent.”

Jones cited the need for Jazira to be stronger in defence, with the capital club conceding from two set pieces against Wasl.

Jones spoke about being able to repay the club for the faith shown in him

“I hope so, that’d be nice,” he said. “Wasl was my first time getting used to the team, the players and who we’re playing against. I feel quite positive and I’m hopeful in the next 12 to 13 games the goals will come.”

Jones will return to international duty in March as he prepares to lead the “Soca Warriors” in two World Cup qualifiers against St Vincent/Grenadine on March 25th and 29th.
