Waterhouse Football Club will look to seal the last spot available for the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) semi-finals, when they take a 1-0 advantage into their second-leg quarter-final against Harbour View at the Drewsland mini-stadium this evening at 7.30 o'clock.

Keithy Simpson who netted the game's only goal on Sunday to separate the teams and give Waterhouse the edge coming into today's contest, says the team is confident they will get the job done at home.

"The first leg we were good, I thought we were sharp and we had some opportunities that we didn't capitalise on," he told STAR Sports yesterday.

But despite not making full use of their chances, Simpson said getting the game's only goal was very important.




The midfielder expects Harbour View to throw everything into attack as they bid to get back into the tie but he has full confidence the team will deliver their semi-final qualification.

"The players and the coaching staff have worked very hard to achieve this and I know it will pay off come tomorrow," he said.

Waterhouse will look to join the other semi-finalists - Arnett Gardens, Portmore United and Cavalier, who defeated Tivoli Gardens 2-0 in their second-leg quarter-final at Edward Seaga Complex yesterday.

The Donovan Duckie-coached Waterhouse will look to Simpson, Carlos Barrett, Mark Miller, Cardel Benbow, Kemar Beckford and Nicholy Findlayson to take them to the semis. Harbour View's hopes of a semi-final spot will depend on the form of Nicholas Beckett, Rafiek Thomas, Evan Taylor, Peter Lee Vassell, Andre Allen and Deshane Brown.|
