TUCKER, St James — Montego Bay United are hoping to snap a six-game winless run when they host Waterhouse FC at WesPow Park on Sunday as the first round of the Red Stripe Premier League comes to a close.

The former champions have struggled for most of the season and are in 10th position on 10 points from 10 games, just one point above the relegation zone, and are badly in need of a run of good results.

Playing at home has not been beneficial for MBU as they are one of two teams, including newcomers Dunbeholden FC, who are yet to win at home.

If there are any positive signs, Waterhouse have been just as bad away as MBU have been at home, and they have not won any games away from home all season, picking up a single point in the last three games played.

The MBU coaching staff will hope the offence clicks sooner than later, and Jourdane Fletcher could return to the starting line-up on Sunday, after missing the game against UWI FC at home last week with an injury, and coming off the bench in a 1-0 loss at Portmore United on Sunday.

Allan Ottey scored his first goal of the season against UWI FC and will be eager to get back on the score sheet on Sunday, as they set up a platform for the second round where they hope to get back into the race for a play-off spot.
