THE Coastal Rental Nadroga team booted Jedi's Stationery Suva out of the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants with a 2-0 upset win at Govind Park in Ba yesterday.
The Gurjeet Singh-coached Suva side ended the match with nine players after referee Dina Mani sent off Leone Damudamu and Emori Ragata in the second half.
Frustration crept into the Capital City players as they failed to find the back of the net.
The match was filled with high drama with both teams missing a penalty each.
Singh expressed disappointment with the result saying indiscipline cost them dearly.
He said some players from the squad would be dumped as they had not performed up to par.
"We are very disappointed," Singh said.
"We got those unnecessary red cards. There are some players that I will just have to drop from the squad.
"Leone I don't think I need him in the team.
"You can't afford to get those cards in the important games.
"You are not playing for yourselves but the district and the fans.
"Simply lack of discipline cost us the game. If we had all the players on the field we could have won."
Ragata dived to his left to stop the penalty taken by Ronald Lawrence in the first spell.
Jonas Naceva skied his spot kick for Suva in the second half.
Damudamu was shown the exit for his second bookable offence.
Ragata saw red in the 78th minute when he head butted Shivan Kumar. Mani awarded Nadroga a penalty.
Joseph Elder beat Pita Rabo who donned the goalkeeper's jumper after Ragata's send off.
Elvin Prasad sealed the win with the second goal late in the match.
Nadroga skipper Peni Finau said their clever ploy of shutting the Suva midfielders worked.
"We are happy with the result," the former Ba and Lautoka rep said.
"We played a four, four, one formation and that helped us overpower Suva.
Our aim was to shut out their midfield."
"We targeted George Jermy, Esava Naqeleca and Pita Rabo as they were the key midfielders. We managed to do that and got a positive result."
