Waterhouse, Portmore look to return to winning form
When champions Portmore United and Waterhouse meet in the feature Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) game this evening at the Drewsland Mini-Stadium starting at 7, both teams will be desperate to get back to winning ways.
Portmore are coming off a loss against Tivoli and have not won in two straight outings, while Waterhouse haven't tasted victory in four matches. They have drawn three matches and lost the other.
Waterhouse will be at home and will be keen to impress their fans and claim their first win in four games. Overall, the Drewsland-based club has been having an indifferent season. Their record shows two wins, three draws and two defeats. They now sit ninth in the standings with nine points, and, based on their inconsistency, it will be difficult to predict which Waterhouse will turn up tonight.
Rediscover his scoring boots
The Marcel Gayle-coached team has scored more than once in only two of their five matches this season and he will need top scorer Girvan Brown to rediscover his scoring boots.
Although Portmore slipped from the top of the table on the last match day and do not look as big a threat without the injured Ewan Grandison and Malique Foster, who is now based in El Salvador. Coach Shavar Thomas said playing well was more critical than being at the top of the table at this time..
"We are more concerned with our performance than being at the top of the table at this time. We want to zone in game by game and look at each player's performance and how they impact the team. We have enough games to come back, so we are not worried about the top of the table. We just need to come more prepared and more focused and ready to play for the three points," he said.
