We are underdogs, but we are ready – Reynolds

first_imgThey are one step away from lifting the title and are quite familiar with the venue, but head coach of the Wolmer’s Boys School Vassell Reynolds, says his team will step into today’s ISSA/FLOW Super Cup finale as underdogs. Wolmer’s will come up against the offensive machine that is Cornwall College at Sabina Park in a 6 p.m. kick-off, on a turf that might as well have been the Maroon and Gold’s backyard given their successes there. Wolmer’s, one of the more consistent teams in the island particularly in knockout competition, will face a stern test in Cornwall College, who are unbeaten after 16 games. “The fact that most people don’t expect us to win, we will be a little bit more relaxed and comfortable. I want my boys to feel that way, and play freely,” underlined Reynolds as he looked forward to today’s contest. “Possibly 10 percent of the public expects Wolmer’s to win, but we are gearing up to use that as a motivating tool and we relish that, to perform under the under-dog status banner,” he told The Gleaner. “Ninety per cent of the public will expect Cornwall to steam roll us but we are not daunted, we are just confident and privileged to go out there and perform against a very good Cornwall College team,” he added. Reynolds is adamant his charges will not allow Cornwall to take the game to them, dismissing any notion his team will play boring football. “It won’t be any boring football, sometimes to grind out a result you have to do what you have to do, and we will do whatever is necessary to win important games,” Vassell noted. “We have to take our chances, I am certain that the sort of fire-power they have in terms of the number of goals they have scored, we have to defend well. Reynolds will have a fully fit and focused roster of players today and ready to rotate properly for extra-time or penalties. He contends there will be room for error, and while Wolmer’s have not scored big in the campaign, they will be hard to score on. “We are positive that we are capable of winning the game, the guys will have to come out and play to the best of their ability. Tomorrow’s performance will have to be our best for the season so far,” Reynolds warned.last_img read more
