Labasa regroups for Nadroga league clash

THE Labasa soccer side is looking to bounce back from their 1-2 loss to Suva last week when they face Nadroga today.

However, they are cautious of Nadroga who registered a 2-1 win over Western giants Lautoka last weekend in their first Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League match.

Labasa Football Association secretary Pravin Karan said they had resumed training from Monday when they had returned from Suva.

"Our plan was to overcome the loss and get everyone back in training for our next match," he said.

"We had 100 per cent turnout in training and the players were consistent."

Karan said team coach/player Pita Bolaitoga was working on some new combinations and some positional changes were expected.

"We will have to wait till tomorrow (today) to see the line-up that Pita goes with but I think there will be some positional changes.

"He (Bolaitoga) has been working on some new combinations, different from what we saw in the match against Suva.

"In that match, our biggest weakness was fitness so that was another key area Pita had worked on."

He said morale was high in camp and they were looking forward to a cracker of a match.

"We are not underestimating Nadroga or any other team in the competition."
