Having failed to win a game in their last four outings, Cavalier FC head coach Rudolph Spied said his team is desperate for a win when they take on Tivoli Gardens in the Red Stripe Premier League at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex on Sunday.

Cavalier, who were held to a 0-0 draw by Humble Lion at home in their last encounter, are sixth in the standings on 13 points from 10 matches.

Their current record stands at three wins, four draws, and three defeats.

"This is a concern that we haven't won in our last four games, but the truth is that we are not playing badly, but we are just conceding late goals most of the time," said Spied.

"We just need to score because the last time we kept a clean sheet was the first game of the season, so we are conscious of the fact that we are conceding too many goals and we have to try make sure that we don't concede any goals in this game," he said.

Cavalier will welcome the return of four players from National Under-20 duty: Jeadin White, Jamoy Topey, Nique Daley, and St Michael Edwards.

"We now have our national Under-20 players back and they will help to boost our squad for this game against Tivoli," Speid said.

"Tivoli is a very tough team, but the last time we went down there, we won in the quarter-finals last year. But we just have to be resolute, because it is going to be a very tough physical game. However, we are going there to do our best and try and make sure that we win the game," Spied noted.
