Arnett learning to grind again
Last Sunday, Jerome Waite, head coach of Arnett Gardens, saw something in his side that he had not seen in a long while the ability to grind out wins.
The Junglists eked out a 2-1 victory over Humble Lion after travelling to Effortville, Clarendon, to register their first victory of 2019.
Waite described the performance as lacklustre but was pleased that his team found a way to get the three points.
"Our last match was a bit lacklustre, and it might have been because of the travelling, but we were able to grind out a victory, and that is what we were able to do in the past, so I was happy about that," he said.
Arnett Gardens had fallen out of the top six for the first time last week as they have not won since the start of 2019.
"We are still plagued with injuries, and the players who were given the opportunity played well, but we have to keep the players we have available motivated, and, hopefully, those players we have on the injury list will come back in time for us to cement our spot in the play-offs," Waite said.
Arnett are scheduled to take on nemeses Tivoli Gardens this weekend at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex.
Tivoli, who are also going through their fair share of trouble, are sitting just outside of play-off contention in seventh position.
