FITNESS is the biggest worry for Suva soccer coach Gurjit Singh when the team starts its preparation for the upcoming season early next month.

Singh said the onus was on the players to do their off season training to remain in shape for the 2014 season.

Suva will start its campaign on January 18 against Labasa at home in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League competition.

"Obviously fitness will be the major factor when the team starts training because the players are coming back after a long layoff," Singh said.

"It will be a challenge because we will have a short time to prepare for the national league."
