Waterhouse FC technical director Marvin Tate says that his team is on course to climb up the table in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) following a 1-1 draw against Humble Lion at Drewsland Stadium yesterday.

"We are on the way back," Tate told STAR Sports after his team earned a point that pushed Waterhouse just above the relegation zone in tenth position.

"We had some issues but those are behind us, so I won't give details. I'm not worried that the team is in the bottom half at this stage as it is a long way to go," he shared.

Waterhouse went in front when substitute Rodave Murray finished a solo effort in the 65th minute. However, that strike was cancelled by Humble Lion's substitute Gary McIntosh a minute later.

Tate added that he is satisfied with the result despite dropping points at home.

Meanwhile, coach of Humble Lion, Donovan Duckie, said his team has talent but lacks professionalism.

"We have talented players but lack of professionalism has been letting us down. It is early days but we want to stay in the top four," Duckie said.

Humble Lion moved to 21 points, while Waterhouse pushed onto 11 points in the 12-team standings.
