Western Tigers, Milerock to face off in GFF doubleheader

West Ruimveldt’s BK Western Tigers will face off against Linden side Milerock FC in an eagerly anticipated showdown when the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) National Premier League continues today at the Georgetown Football Club, Bourda.

Made to work in their 3-1 win over Buxton United, Western Tigers will require another clinical display from their attacking trio of Hubert Pedro, Randolph Wagner and Marvin Joseph if a victory is to be achieved when the hostilities start.

Defeated 3-1 in their previous fixture by East Coast Demerara unit BV/Triumph United, the Lindeners will need an improved performance over the course of the 90 minutes, if they are to reverse their stuttering fortunes and avoid the relegation zone.

Milerock FC Coach Bryan Joseph, in an invited comment said, “The interest in the premier league has disappeared basically and we struggle to have attendances for training and for matches. Due to this we are struggling to work on team tactics.”

“The biggest challenge we face is to get the players motivated for the game and right now it’s a matter [of] surviving in the league,” he said. The Western Tigers/Milerock FC feature match starts at 8pm.

The opening fixture of the night at 6pm will see Grove Hi-Tech led by the duo of Domini Garnett and Joel Dick facing off against Mahaica Determinators and their duo of Terry Caesar and Sherwin Hermonstine. Coach of the Mahaica unit Peter Gulliver said, “For the past couple of games we have [been] losing rapidly due to basic mistakes. Today we will field a strange team that has never played before and we expect a good performance from these youngsters that will lead to a win.”

Meanwhile, Grove Hi-Tech coach Jermin Alves said “Preparation is coming okay like normal. Every day is training and we expect to come out victorious as usual and win the game by three or four goals clear. I have seen Mahaica play before and they are impressive and we will have to go out and play hard to win.”
