Waterhouse will look to maintain a perfect start when they tackle Frazsiers Whip in the Jamaica Football Federation Women's Premier League at the Drewsland Stadium, today at 4 p.m.

Waterhouse swamped Rangers 11-0 at home in the opening fixture last Saturday, then three days later clobbered newcomers Cavalier 7-0 at the same venue.

Now, they will look to continue that run and head coach Xavier Gilbert is confident that his team will beat Frazsiers Whip and move closer to a spot in the mid-season final.

"I am pretty pleased with the performances by the team so far, but there are some things to work on. We played them (Frazsiers Whip) in a preseason game and they are a pretty young and exciting bunch, We should get the better of them, as we want to continue winning," Gilbert told STAR Sports yesterday.

FIRSTOBJECTIVE

"A win tomorrow would put us closer to the mid-season final, which is our first objective," he added.

With the absence of many-time champions Barbican, and perennial contenders Los Perfectos from this season's league, Waterhouse have benefited by picking up players from those clubs on loan.

They are blessed with current and former national players such as Latoya Duhaney, Takiesha Small, Rochelle Grey, Kenesha Reid, Tarania Clarke and Ashlee Sawyers.

Frazsiers Whip, who have returned to the league, lost their only game so far but is bracing for a tough clash against Waterhouse.

"Not that we are fearless, but we are going there confident as the aim is to win after going down 3-2 in our game against St Ann Women a week ago. We need the point, so the game is very important," Frazsiers' Whip manager Marcia Pinnock said.

Frazsiers Whip will rely on Sadea Smith and Kelly Nunes, who scored against St Ann Women.
