THE Tavua Football Association says it needs technical assistance prior to round five of the National Football League this weekend.
Tavua faces table leaders Nadi on Saturday at Govind Park in their fourth Fiji Sun/GP Batteries NFL match. Yesterday, Fiji FA revealed the minor district had requested assistance.
Fiji FA chief executive officer Bob Kumar said they would help any district that needed help.
"Tavua has requested us for technical assistance and we will be sending some of our technical officials to help them prepare for their next league match," he said.
Kumar urged districts to approach the parent body for any assistance.
"We are willing to help any team if they need help. And also we are encouraging the districts to have qualified coaches coaching their team," he said.
Tavua takes on Nadi at 1pm while Ba hosts Suva at 3pm.
Meanwhile, 20 goals were scored in round four of the NFL Super Premier matches over the weekend.
And 13 goals were scored in the premier and under-21 divisions.
Eight goals were scored in Saturday's games between Nadroga and Navua and Nadi and Suva while the Ba-Tavua and Lautoka-Suva games recorded 12 goals on Sunday.
Kumar said the scores could be positive for winning teams.
However, he highlighted the need for losing teams to work extra hard in tightening their defence.
"This reflects that some teams are strong and improving but on the other hand the losing teams will need to work hard," he said.
Nadi still leads the points table with 13 points, followed by Ba with 12. Suva has 10 and Navua is fourth with six points from two consecutive wins.
