Rodu puts more focus on defense

THE Rewa soccer team intends to go into its match against Ba tomorrow with a better defensive structure.

Rewa was on a bye last weekend in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League and will travel to Ba to face the home side at Govind Park at 4pm.

Coach Marika Rodu said training had slowly picked up again after the break.

He said the main area of concern for him after their last game, which they lost 0-1 to Suva, was poor defence.

"I am being forced to work on my defence after the last game," Rodu said.

"I can't see the aggressiveness after we lose possession; hopefully, the boys do this right in the next game.

"Also trying to fine-tune our attacking moments, the surprising factor was missing in our last game."

Rodu said his players understood what the game plan would be and a win against Ba was not impossible.

"They can be beaten, but playing on their home ground will be tough as they will have the vocal support as well.

"They have a lot of history and this is why they play with a lot of confidence and structure."

Rodu is happy that all his players are injury-free and available for the match, which he says is quite important for his side.

"This is the most important match for Rewa as far as the whole competition is concerned.

"A win will boost the morale of the team into achieving better results in our future games."
