It wilL be the third meeting between St Jago and St George's College this season, with the Georgians winning both contests.

They meet again in today's ISSA-FLOW Super Cup semi-final at Sabina Park and St Jago coach, Glen Laing, anticipates a very difficult contest, one in which he believes his players will have to fight very hard to prevail.

"They will have to fight, fight. It will be a tough game, because when you play a team twice and it's a quality team you can expect a very tough challenge," he said.

St George's won the first meeting 3-2, and in the last game they fired three unanswered goals past the Spanish Town school.

Laing noted that it is unlike his players not to score goals and they will be looking to trouble the St George's net today.

"We are designed to score goals based on our attack. We had to give them (players) a wake-up call after the last game. We did some serious talking with them and I expect the perseverance of St Jago to come through," he continued.

Laing declared that the Manning Cup was their prime target, however, he says they will be making every effort to move on to the FLOW Super Cup final as well.

"We had STETHS last weekend, and we went through and won that one, so there is no letting up now. We are coming to do the hard work (in semi-final) because we are aiming for the two cups, although the Manning Cup is the one we would prefer," he added.
