Andrew Price, assistant coach of Jamaica's senior women's football team, said he is looking forward to the top-of-the-table clash against Cuba in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Challenge Series tomorrow at Drewsland Stadium, in Waterhouse, St Andrew, at 5 p.m.

Both nations are locked on three points in Group B, ahead of Barbados, who finished the group without a point. Jamaica edged Barbados 3-2 yesterday at the UWI/JFF Captain Horace Burrell Centre of Excellence. However, Cuba swamped Barbados 7-0 at the same venue on Wednesday.

Now, Jamaica and Cuba will battle for the top spot in the series, which was organised to give much needed match practice ahead of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers next month.

"It is a work in progress as some of these girls are playing international football for the first time in two years, and 10 of them were making their senior debuts," Price told STAR Sports, after the game yesterday.

Price is now looking ahead to Cuba.

"We just have to get ourselves ready for Cuba. It is going to be a tough game. I have seen them against Barbados. We just have to go out there and play a more collective football. We have to defend well and attack as a unit. Once we do that, the team should be good to go," he said.
