BABASIGA Lions coach Arthur Simmons says the ground condition at Subrail Park had affected his team's performance which resulted in a nil-all draw against Navua yesterday.
The Lions remain in third place in the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National Football League after sharing a point with their visitors.
Simmons said the wet soggy ground condition at Subrail Park had affected his team that many of them failed to perform to their capabilities and produce the much-needed goals against Navua.
"We had expected a good result in this match but then we cannot do a lot about the ground condition," said Simmons.
"Tomorrow we will meet Rewa under the same conditions and we need to come up with better strategies to counter the ground condition which is wet and soggy affecting the flow of the ball and the players' performance," he said.
Navua coach Manoj Kumar said the match was an awesome one.
"We do not mind the result as we all get to have one point each for performing in this match and the ground condition was not in an agreeable state," said Kumar.
"Our regular players were missing from the match but this did not stop our boys from performing and defending against the Labasa team," he said.
