SUVA will miss the services of top choice goalkeeper Emori Ragata in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League match against Nadroga this weekend.

Ragata is on automatic suspension after copping a direct red card in the fixture against Lautoka at Churchill Park last Sunday.

He was sent off the field in injury time after stomping Lautoka replacement Livai Senibulu.

Suva won the match 2-0.

Former Rewa goalkeeper Uliasi Tamanisau will cover for Ragata.

Suva coach Gurjeet Singh said they would not take Nadroga lightly.

Singh said the players need to remain focussed.

"The big matches against Ba and Nadi are coming up," he said.

"We have to maintain our composure and take each game as it comes. Right now we are on track but there is still a long way to go in the competition."

Suva will host Nadroga at the ANZ Stadium at 3pm on Sunday.

On Saturday, Labasa will host Nadi at Subrail Park at 3pm while Ba and Rewa will battle at Govind Park at 4pm.
