NADROGA is hopeful of another fairytale run in the second round of the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League game against Labasa this weekend.

After their 2-1 win over Lautoka last week, the side is brimming with confidence that they can repeat the feat against the Babasiga Lions.

Team president Vijay Singh said playing away from home would not deter the players from bagging another three points in the competition.

He said he had faith in his players despite the away game disadvantage.

"I believe the boys will go another level up this weekend," said Singh.

"We have proven our worth last week against Lautoka and I am confident the boys will do well again this weekend.

"We will just have to reset our focus and use a game plan to counter Labasa's attacking flair."

Singh said the win against Lautoka was a boost to the players against the Northerners knowing Labasa would be hungry to win for their fans.

He said Labasa had nothing to lose and would be a tough nut to crack after their loss to Suva last weekend.

"We know what to expect from Labasa and we will map out a team formation to counter the hosts," said Singh.

"Labasa has every reason to win since they are hosting the game and they want to make amends from their loss to Suva."

Singh also thanked the Nadroga fans and sponsors for their support.

"I would like to thank our sponsors and business outlets such as Sigatoka Motors, Pacific Green, Coastal Rentals, Sigatoka Electric to name a few, for sponsoring the team and employing our players.

"We also thank our loyal supporters for believing in the side and we need their support against Labasa and throughout the season.

"The players will only do well with the backing of the fans and the sponsors."

The game will be held at Subrail Park on Saturday at 1.30pm.
