Waterhouse FC will be coming at full strength for their KSAFA/Jamaica Yellow Pages Jackie Bell Knockout second-round return leg against Barbican at Waterhouse Stadium today, starting at 4 p.m.

KSAFA Super League team, Barbican hold a 1-0 lead from the first leg, but will not have it easy against Waterhouse, who are in third position in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL).

"In the first leg, we used a second string team and lost 1-0 as a result of an own goal. Now, we will not take any chance in the return game as we will be coming at full strength," Junior Francis, coach of Waterhouse, told The Gleaner yesterday.

Francis said apart from Romario Campbell, Lamar Nelson, Nicholy Finlayson and Vinroy Hayle - all on the injury list, the other players are available.

"We will use a full strength squad in order to win this game and progress to the next stage in this competition," Francis emphasised.

Barbican are fully aware that the tie is not over. They will come to Waterhouse to protect the lead and hope that luck goes their way.

In other games, RSPL leaders Harbour View are in a comfortable situation as they won 7-0 against Bull Bay in the first leg. August Town and Greenwich Town ended 2-2 in the first game and will have all to play for in the return match.

Tivoli Gardens will enter their tie against Rae Town on the back of a 3-1 lead.
