As Guyana Amazon Warriors prepare for their final two matches before the playoff stage commences, Assistant Coach Esuan Crandon is urging the fans to expect a good showing from the local franchise as they seek qualification for the next round.
The Warriors are set to take on Barbados Tridents on Tuesday followed by Jamaica Tallawahs on Friday, September 1.
At this period the fans of the three time finalists are filled with anxiety and are eagerly awaiting the outcome of the next two matches.
However, Esuan Crandon, Assistant Coach of the team is urging the fan base to expect a good showing from the Warriors as they aim to come out on top in their quest to win both matches.
“Expect good fight from the Warriors…we previously had two good games, which is good momentum for us to build on going forward. We know it is not going to be easy neither would any team be willing to slack up at this stage.
It is just a manner of putting a good game together; play a little bit smarter, be more aware of situations and conditions.”
The Assistant Coach is optimistic of his team’s chances at qualification for the playoffs but insist that they must first get the basics done correctly.
Preparation ahead of these two matches is important and the Warriors unit has been putting in the lots over the past two days before they depart for Barbados on Sunday, according to Crandon.
He also considers the absence of former skipper Martin Guptill a major hiccup to the team’s preparation but is optimistic that the other players and Guptill’s replacement, Luke Ronchi, are professionals, who could complete the job.
