League leaders wary of Nadroga

THE Suva soccer side is taking a cautious approach towards its match against Nadroga tomorrow.

The two teams meet in a Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League fixture at 4pm at Suva's ANZ Stadium.

While the Capital City side is unbeaten in the competition, having won all five games, they are not taking Nadroga lightly.

Suva coach Gurjeet Singh said the westerners are very unpredictable even though they were sixth on the points table.

"Nadroga is very unpredictable and they proved this when they beat Lautoka in their first game," he said.

"And now that their coach has changed, we don't know what to expect from them on Sunday."

Singh said they might miss the services of two key players.

"Jonas Naceva has not been turning up for training and so he is in doubt for the match while Emori Ragata is completely ruled out because of a red card he received in our 2-0 win against Lautoka last weekend.

"Apart from that training has been going on as normal and the other players are available for the match."

Singh said his players would need to maintain consistency in every game they played.

"We cannot afford to take any team lightly even though we are unbeaten in the competition.

"The other teams are coming with the intention to defeat us and we must prevent that."

Suva leads the points table with 12 points, having won all four of their games this season.
