Leeds and Derby stars on verge of winning international trophy

Leeds United and Derby County duo have Jamaica on the verge of international success.

Jamaica have failed to repeat their World Cup qualifying success since making the 1998 tournament, but the nation may have a trophy to soon celebrate.

The Caribbean Cup tournament is into it's final stage, and the Reggae Boyz are one game away from clinching the trophy.

They defeated Haiti 2-0 at the weekend, to progress to the final against Trinidad and Tobago which takes place on Tuesday.

Derby County's Simon Dawkins was on the scoresheet, while days earlier Leeds United's Rodolph Austin had netted in the win over Antigua.

Austin is the national captain, and will lift the trophy if Jamaica are successful in this week's final.

For both players, coming back to their respective clubs full of confidence will be a big boost for them, but it should also be noted each side will be playing their fourth match in a week when the final is over.

Dawkins, 26, has scored four goals in all competitions for Derby this season, while Austin has one for Leeds.

Jamaica won the tournament in 2010, but Cuba are the reigning champions, triumphing in 2012.

Trinidad and Tobago are bidding to win it for the first time since 2001, but are the tournament's most successful side, with eight wins to Jamaica's five.
