Long time rivals, Waterhouse and Harbour View, will meet in the feature Red Stripe Premier League game tomorrow evening at the Waterhouse mini-stadium. Kick-off is set for 6 o'clock.

Both teams will enter tomorrow's game with different objectives. Harbour View are still chasing a semi-final spot while Waterhouse are in a fight against relegation.

Only two other matches will be contested tomorrow. Boys' Town take on Reno at Barbican Football Field and Rivoli United host UWI FC at the Spanish Town Prison Oval. Both games start at 3:30 p.m.

With only 22 points from 26 games, Waterhouse are rooted at the foot of the table and have only seven matches to save their season. They sit two points behind second-from-bottom Rivoli (24) and nine adrift of Reno and Boys' Town on 31 points each. Waterhouse have taken just one point from their last three matches. If that trend continues and the Drewsland-based team don't start accumulating wins then they can kiss their Premier League status goodbye.

very good position

Harbour View, on the other hand, are on 35 points, five off fourth place Humble Lion in sixth place with six games to go. They are still in a very good position to qualify for the last four. but they too have not won in four games and they need to start winning if they intend to overtake fifth place UWI (38) and catch Humble Lion (40).

Meanwhile, UWI FC's quest for a historic semi-final spot in their debut season can get a major boost with a win tomorrow against Rivoli. Victory will put the Mona-based UWI FC into fourth spot, one point ahead of Humble Lion who will be out of action.

At Barbican, hosts Boys' Town and Reno go into the game seven points above the relegation zone and both will be looking to move further away from the bottom two. The teams are evenly matched and the match should be very competitive.

In Monday night's game, Cavalier in seventh on 32 points, will host Portmore United at the Stadium East. Portmore are in third on 47.
