Drudru nails two

SAMUELA Drudru scored a brace of goals to help his Suva side beat Navua 3-1 yesterday.

This was the second victory for the Capital City side in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League from as many games.

And the win has sent a strong message to the other teams in the competition that Suva is out to win the League title this year.

Drudru drew first blood just after four minutes of play but the celebration was short lived because a Simione Damoni attempt was deflected by Suva defender Jale Dreloa into his own goal in the 11th minute.

Drudru then gave Suva a 2-1 lead at half-time with a superb strike in the 21st minute of play.

Nikil Chand scored Suva's third goal just three minutes into the second half.

Navua tried hard to work their way back into the match but the combination and poor finishing let them down.

Only four of their shots were on target in the second half while Suva hit the bar four times and the side post on five occasions.

Whites coach Gurjeet Singh said they missed a lot of scoring opportunities.

"Three goals is a good score but we could have been more if we didn't miss so many scoring opportunities," he said.

"Also the combination is there and the goal scoring chances are created but we need to work on finishing and fitness would need more work."

Navua coach Mohammed Shafil said Suva was a better team and his team lost concentration in the match.

"We had to do a lot of work but we were unlucky we could score more goals and there was lack of concentration," he said.

"We need to go back and analyse our performance and talk about our weaknesses and discuss how we can improve our game."
