Tigers wary of city boys

REWA expects a tough battle against Suva when the two teams meet on Sunday.

Both sides are chasing their third straight win in as many matches in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League competition.

Rewa coach Marika Rodu said Suva was in form and would be a tough nut to crack on it own home ground — the ANZ Stadium.

"Suva is currently the most formed team as far as the NFL is concerned," he said.

"Their performance has been consistent. They know what they are doing."

The Delta Tigers are on the prowl having beaten Navua 2-1 in their first match and then came from behind to defeat Lautoka 3-2 last week.

Rodu said his team was injury-free and there would be no major change in his starting line-up although a tactical change may take place.

"No major changes as far as players are concerned.

"However, tactically, we may adopt a suitable defensive and attacking system which will suit a champion team like Suva."

Rodu says the weather did not affect their preparation for the match but he hopes it will be clear skies when they walk onto the field at 3pm.

Having played both their games at home on the Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori, Rewa will look for a similar outcome at the ANZ Stadium.

"I think it does not make any difference.

"The ground is good and I am sure all Rewa fans can still travel to Suva to support the team."
