St Andrew Technical High's (STATHS) coach Phillip Williams and St George's College's Neville Bell are both unconcerned about the one-day delay to the Manning Cup play-off game between both schools.

Both teams are hunting the last spot in the Manning Cup semi-finals. The game, which was originally set for yesterday, was rescheduled for today at the Constant Spring Complex, starting at 2:30 p.m.

A release from organisers, ISSA, stated: "Due to inclement weather, the match has been rescheduled."

However, Williams is not concerned about the one-day delay.

"It is not really a setback. We have gone through two rough games leading up to this one, so I see the extra day as good for the team," Williams told The Gleaner yesterday.

Bell also said that the delay is no big deal.

"It is a very important match, I mean, if we lose the game that is it for the season. We want to continue," Bell said.

Both teams ended the quarter-final round on three points and identical goal difference behind Group G winners Holy Trinity.

Extra time and, if necessary, penalty kicks, will be employed if the teams are tied at the end of regulation time.
