Waterhouse face survival battle

@Normal:Waterhouse's coach Anthony Patrick

Waterhouse coach Anthony Patrick says the team remains positive about their chances of survival and will fight to the very end to save the club from relegation. The Drewsland-based club is rooted at the bottom of the table on 22 points from 27 games and will play third-place Arnett Gardens (52 points) at the Tony Spaulding Complex this evening at 6 p.m.

In the day's other game Boys' Town entertain Reno at Barbican field at 3.30 p.m.

"I have been hearing that for the last four, five games that this will be the last game for us. We still have a chance, so we have to remain positive," said Patrick.

"Seeing the players coming to training, you can see the urge, and they are really up for whatever. We have six games remaining, we just need a string of wins, once we can do that, we can put ourselves in good stead. And once we put away our chances, we can get the better of Arnett," he added.

TOPPED GROUP

Fresh from their CFU club championship first-round exploits, where they topped their group with maximum points after three convincing victories, Arnett, who have two matches in hand and are third, can move back into second place on goal difference with a win over their rivals at home this evening.

Waterhouse have 18 points available with six matches remaining. They are presently five points behind second-from-bottom Rivoli United on 27 and nine adrift of Reno and Boys' Town on 31 each.

The other game between Reno and Boys' Town will be of some interest as both teams are just above the relegation zone and will want to keep their

distance.
