Tuesday, January 21, 2014

THE much anticipated third leg of the 2013 Pillays Garments Champion versus Champion series between 4R Electrical Ba and Shop N Save Nadi will be played at Lautoka's Churchill Park on Saturday.

This is according to Fiji FA CEO Bob Kumar as the two teams prepare for the royal battle to determine the soccer King of Fiji for the 2013.

Kumar said both teams would give their best to prove their dominance in local football.

He said to hold the game at a neutral ground would be fair to both teams.

"This is a knockout game with the winner to be crowned the champion of Fiji soccer for 2013," said Kumar.

Both teams drew during their previous two encounters held at Nadi and Ba respectively and it would be interesting to watch the two champiions during the decider game.

Some players that are expected to dictate the game for Nadi are strikers Rusiate Matairerega, Amani Makoe, tough defender Uraia Loki and goalkeeper Beniamino Mateinaqara.

Ba is expected to feature a star-studded team which boosted sharp shooter Avinesh Swammy, Marika Madigi, Abbu Zahid, Jone Vesikula and Remuera Tekiata to name a few.

The game kicks off at 3pm.

Meanwwhile, three national league games will be played this weekend.

Labasa will host Nadroga at Subrail Park while the wounded Lautoka Blues will travel to Nausori on Saturday.

The Capital City boys will host neigbhours Navua at the ANZ Stadium on Sunday.
