TAVUA Football Association does not want to play the promotion/relegation series despite finishing last in the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National Football League.
The goldminers initially finished second last to Savusavu, but following the protest decision by Fiji Football Association, Tavua has been relegated to the bottom of the points table.
Fiji FA ruled against Tavua's protest in favour of Navua while awarding Savusavu the maximum points for its protest against Nadroga.
Tavua protested that Navua player Inia Boko was supposed to miss a game following two yellow cards while Savusavu claimed Nadroga fielded an unregistered player.
Tavua has 11 points now following the decision while Savusavu escapes the danger of relegation on 12 points.
Tavua soccer interim president Shailesh Kumar lashed at Fiji FA's decision labelling it an "unfair" ruling. He said they had sufficient proof that Boko was to miss the game against them.
"We mistakenly received a fax from Fiji FA, which was directed to Navua soccer, stating that Inia Boko had to miss the game because he received two yellow cards," Kumar said.
"We are very upset with the decision of Fiji FA and we are going to appeal it and if we don't get justice, we will take the matter to court."
Fiji FA chief executive officer Bob Kumar said the ruling had been done and Tavua was free to appeal their decision.
Meanwhile, the winner of the premier division is yet to be decided as Tailevu Naitasiri and Taveuni will feature in the deciding leg of the Viti Levu/Vanua Levu premier playoff series next weekend at Subrail Park in Labasa.
Both teams have won a match each in the series.
