    PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad & Tobago – Kenwyne Jones will miss Central FC’s last game in the 2016/17 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League on Wednesday at Sporting Kansas as recovers from tendon damage in his leg.

    The 32-year-old forward will be sidelined for a short, but undetermined, amount of time after suffering the injury in Trinidad & Tobago’s 2-0 loss at Martinique in the Caribbean Cup on October 11.

    It is expected that Jones will be available to play in the Soca Warriors’ first match in the final round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup on November 11 against Costa Rica.

    “It’s always a difficult situation when any member of your team suffers an injury,” said T&T head coach Stephen Hart. “The team is not based one player and as a unit, the players and all of us members of this team would obviously have to understand our roles and contributions that are required at this level of the game.

    “We all have one common goal which is to always represent our country and ourselves in the best possible way when put on the national shirt and this includes adapting and adjusting to circumstances as they arise.”

    Both Central FC and Sporting Kansas City had previously been eliminated from contention for a spot in the SCCL’s quarterfinals.
