Tigers work on attack

THE Rewa soccer side is working on improving their finishing ahead of their match against Nadi tomorrow.

The Delta Tigers won their first match in the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National Football League against Tavua 1-0 and are looking forward to another victory.

Rewa Football Association president Nazeel Buksh said a lot of hard work was needed to be done in the match if they wanted to taste success for the second week in a row.

He said despite disruptions in training because of bad weather earlier this week, players resumed full training from Wednesday.

"The main area of concern for us in the game against Tavua was goal scoring," Buksh said.

"So that is what we have been concentrating on most of our training sessions because goals win matches," he said.

He said he was wary of their opponents who recorded a win and a draw on their northern tour last weekend.

"Nadi won the Pacific Cup in December and they beat Labasa and drew against Savusavu last weekend, so they are a consistent team.

"They will be much tougher opponents than Tavua so we have been preparing accordingly.

"We have a good mixture of young and senior reps and we look forward to playing Nadi."

Buksh said another area of concern for his side would be playing at Prince Charles Park in Nadi.

"They have the home ground and crowd advantage but my message to the boys will be play their game and to give it their best shot so that they come out with a win," he said.

The match kicks off at 3.30pm.
