Struggling Waterhouse hunt their first victory in the Premier League this season, hosting Cavalier at Drewsland Stadium tonight, starting at 8:30.

Waterhouse are next to last in the league on four points, the same as Cavalier, who are eighth in the 12-team standings.

The last time Waterhouse played at home, they went down 0-5 to Portmore, a heavy loss in front of demanding supporters.

Veteran goalkeeper Richard McCallum, who replaced Diego Haughton between the sticks after the first two games, has so far conceded six of the eight goals scored against his team in three games. Reports are that McCallum will again be in goal.

Coach Glendon 'Admiral' Bailey, who added 16 players to the roster in the preseason, is not yet under pressure, but another home loss could spell trouble.

Bailey will rely on Andre Dawson and Tremaine Stewart to score goals. His new recruits, Shawn Lawes and Ricardo Harriot, hope to stabilise their defensive line.

Cavalier will also be looking for a positive result. Their only win was on the road against Montego Bay United and they will certainly be looking for another away victory tonight.

Cavalier's technical director, Rudolph Speid, will hope that national representatives Alex Marshall and Chevon Marsh can come good in attack. Both players will look to support from Nicholas Hamilton, Kemar Shaw and Oshane Roberts.
