Promoted Sandals South Coast will hunt their first win when they face Harbour View in the Red Stripe Premier League at Harbour View Stadium tonight, starting at  8:35.

Sandals are in their debut season in the nation's top-flight league and yet to score a point after two games. After promotion, Sandals did little in the transfer market and are not coping so far.

The new team went down 1-3 in their opening fixture to reigning champions Arnett Gardens two weeks ago and also lost 0-4 to Portmore United.

Now, Sandals could have another hard time against Harbour View at the 'Compund'.

The Aaron Lawrence-coached Sandals South Coast will look to get off the mark with players such as the live wire Jamoy Sibblies, who transferred from relegated Maverley-Hughenden, Dervin Campbell and captain Leonardo Rankine.

Meanwhile, having won once and drawn once, Harbour View will be looking for a first win at home in the new season.

The Ricardo 'Bibi' Gardner-coached Harbour View key players include the skillful Ryan Wellington who transferred from Portmore United, veteran defender Christopher Harvey and captain Nicholas Beckett in midfield.
