Suva expects tough match against Lautoka

THE Suva soccer side is taking a cautious approach towards their match against Lautoka tomorrow at Churchill Park.

With the battle of the Cities to be played at 1pm, Suva is expecting a tough match in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League fixture.

Coach Gurjeet Singh said it would be a challenge for his side to play in the Western heat in the middle of the day.

"We are really not sure why the game has been scheduled for 1pm," he said.

"It's very hot in the Western Division and 1pm is like the middle of the day and the sun would be directly overhead.

"Most of the other games in the West were played at 3 or 4pm but I don't know why this match was scheduled for 1pm."

He said they were wary of Lautoka since the Blues has lost all three of their games in the competition so far.

"They have nothing to lose having lost all three games so far and that means they will be targeting their first win.

"They will be tough especially since they are playing on their home-ground in front of their own crowd."

Singh said a win would be important for his side to extend their lead at the top of the points table.

"We need to be consistent and keep that winning streak.

"We know how important a win is in the competition in order to maintain our lead."
