Veteran Toma returns to boost Nadi's CVC bid

THE Nadi team is sweating on the speedy recovery of midfield dual Munit and Rahul Krishna ahead of the Pillay Garments Champion versus Champion decider against Ba at Churchill Park in Lautoka on Saturday.

The duo missed the early training sessions this week after being injured in the second CVC fixture at Govind Park last Sunday.

However, there is some good news for the Shop N Save-sponsored Jetsetters.

Veteran Viliame Toma has recovered from a groin strain and is a sure starter for the deciding clash.

Nadi Football Association president Navneeda Gounder said Munit and Rahul were undergoing physiotherapy.

Gounder said Saturday's game would be a do-or-die one for both teams.

"Toma is back at training and he will be playing his first match for the year," he said.

"There is a lot of hype about the third game. It will be played on a knockout basis so we will have to be sharp from the opening whistle."

Nadi has never won the CVC series while Ba will be gunning for a record 18th title.

Gounder said busses would be arranged to transport their fans to Churchill Park.

He said the timing and venue for the bus departure would be announced later.

Meanwhile, the Fiji Football Association is expecting a big crowd to witness the match after the home and away matches ended in a draw.

The tickets for the match are available at the Fiji FA national academy in Ba, the Lautoka City Council office and the Vodafone booth at the Nadi market.

The ticket prices remain the same with adults paying $5 and children under-12 $2.

Extra time will be played if the match ends in a tie after 90 minutes. If the result remains the same after the mandatory extra period then a penalty shootout will take place to determine the winner.

The match will kick-off at 4pm.
