We are fresh and ready - Ambusley says MoBay now over hectic schedule

Montego Bay United captain, Dwayne Ambusley, said excessive traveling over the course of the season has been the main reason behind the team's poor form leading up to the play-offs.

In March the team played six matches in two weeks, including the CFU championship first round qualifiers and three away Red Stripe Premier League games in a week following.

Ambusley however believes the team has recovered and are ready to face an ageing Arnett Gardens in their RSPL quarter-final this evening at the Tony Spaulding Sports Complex.

"We live for this and we expect this to be no different this year," he told STAR Sports.

"I understand that it looks bad on paper but that has never happened to us and that's because the CFU games were much harder," he said.

Ambusley said the excess traveling has given new coach Rod Underwood very little time to adjust to life at MoBay, but he is confident the players will come through at the end.

"The coach only came in two weeks before the CFU Championship but we are coming to Kingston for the first-half and we want to win that half. We are coming for three points and when we come back to MoBay we will look to put the icing on the cake,' he said, admitting that it won't be easy.

"It will not be easy but we trust our ability and our players and 90 per cent of the team has been here before so I don't see any reason why we can't do the same again this year," he said.

Meanwhile, Arnett's coach, Jerome Waite, has also shrugged off his team's poor late season form and is looking for them to flip the switch and come with their best in tonight's game.

"We still have high expectations as we are still the best attacking team in the league," he said.
