Technical director of Wolmer’s Boys Rudolph Speid said that his team is growing in confidence as the ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup season progresses. This is after his team’s hard-fought 1-0 victory over Tivoli Gardens in their top-of-the-table clash in Group A at Heroes Circle yesterday. Wolmer’s, who are last year’s beaten finalist, finished atop the group with 25 points, four ahead Tivoli. Speid said that he is now very close to finding his best starting eleven, and his players have been improving in training, so he is expecting great things from them for the remainder of the season. “We started the season with only three players returning from last year, so it was always going to be a work in progress,” said Speid. “But we actually decided that we were going to prepare the team week in, week out, so today (Monday) as you can see, I think we’re actually close to starting our best team,” Speid said. “We missed a lot of opportunities. If we had scored these, then the scoreline would have been a lot different,” he said. Speid added: “We are pretty confident going into the next round because we know that we might be playing one of the lesser teams based on our rankings. But as you know, you can’t take anything for granted, so what we are going to do is to ensure that we are more prepared than those teams and we should be okay.” Akeem Virgo scored the lone goal for Wolmer’s in the 48th minute. Virgo, who missed number of clear opportunities in the first half, arrived at the back post to fire home a powerful volley past Tivoli goalkeeper Khail Simpson. Tivoli Gardens’ coach Tommy Ricketts said that he was dissatisfied with his team’s efforts. “Our performance was a bit low because we have a few players that were missing and our performance wasn’t all that perfect,” said Ricketts. “We are still upbeat going into second round because we just have a few things that we need to get right,” he said.
