Facing elimnation...indiscipline ruins Wadadah's only chance at top-flight football in decade

Manager of Wadadah, Audley Johnson, believes that indiscipline might ruin his side's chances of advancing to the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) next season.

The two-time national champions find themselves rooted at the bottom of the Magnum/Charley's JB/JFF Premier League promotion play-off series, without a point after three consecutive defeats.

And after going down 3-0 to Barbican on June 3, then 1-0 to Mount Pleasant Football Academy three days later, and a massive 4-0 lost to Dunbeholden last Sunday, the Western Confederation champions are in danger of extending the Premier League drought for an additional year.

With three games remaining in the series, they need to turn their fortune around by winning the games, while hoping other results go their way.

INDISCIPLINE

"We hope to get maximum points from the last three games and other results go in our favour. We need to treat the last three games as finals. It is must win from here, nothing less to keep in contention," Johnson told STAR Sports, following last Sunday's game at Dunbeholden Sports Complex in St Catherine.

"The spirit is still there but schoolboy errors continue to haunt us. The indiscipline by not following instructions is killing us as a team. We approached the game with a plan and as we enter the field the game plan go through the window. We will have to work on the discipline for the next three games," he added.

Wadadah will next play Barbican at Barbican Complex on Sunday, starting at 4 p.m.

The St James-based team last played in the nation's top-flight league in 2007.

At the completion of the home and away series on July 1, the top two teams will advance to the RSPL.
