No easing up - Speid promises

July 01, 2017

Technical director of Cavalier Rudolph Speid has promises that won't be easing up against Sandals South Coast in the final round in the Magnum/Charley's JB/JFF Premier League play-off series tomorrow at the Stadium East Complex, starting at 3:30 p.m.

Cavalier have already gained promotion to next season Red Stripe Premier League, but Sandals South Coast need to avoid defeat in order to join Cavalier. With that scenario, both games will be of high interest.

"There will be no let up. We are a professional team and approach each game to win," Speid told STAR Sports yesterday.

Earlier this week, Sandals South Coast head coach Aaron Lawrence who will miss the game due to overseas duty with the Jamaica national Under-15 team, said that: "We are not expecting any favours from Cavalier."


Not regular starters


Speid said that Lawrence is correct. "We won't give any favours as we never expect any," he said.

Speid pointed out that he could expose some players who are not regular starters.

"We have players who don't play regularly, but they are also good players. We are a pro team, and the last time we gained promotion to the RSPL, we had won all six games, so we are a bit disappointed having won twice and drawn three games so far," Speid reasoned.

Meanwhile, in the other game, home side Rivoli are expected to beat Priory.
