New Montego Bay United coach Vassell Reynolds says one of his main objectives this season is to help the team perform much better than they did last season, and key to his plans will be the fitness and form of ace striker, Dino Williams.

The prolific Williams had an injury-plagued season last term and is still recovering from a knee laceration he obtained in the off season. But he still managed10 goals last season, and Reynolds has underlined the importance of the striker to his plans and ambition of getting Montego Bay United back to the top of local football.

"We still have Dino Williams, he's recovering from surgery. He is at a good stage. He is in training and doing much more than we anticipated. He is about 60 per cent in training and he is showing no signs of ill effect and that is a good sign for us.

"Hopefully, we can get him up to 25 per cent at the start of the competition, but he should be there with us early in the season. We are not going to rush him. We will be patient and hopefully he will be ready as soon as possible to give of his best," he told Star Sports.

"We think our strength, based on the players we have retained, is in midfield. We still have the experience of player/assistant coach Dwayne Ambursley, Keneil Kirlew, John Barrett and some good youngsters who came in last season. But we will be focused on how to get a Dino Williams back up to his regular standard, and once we can get him to start getting goals as he is used to, that will be a strength for us upfront," he added.
