NADI upset Labasa with a 1-0 victory in their Fiji Sun Skipper Tuna Football League clash at Subrail Park in Labasa yesterday.

Labasa seemed to be the promising side out of the two as it made a series of attacks inside the Nadi half in the first half of the match.

As a result of some tough Nadi defence Napolioni Qasevakatini and Vuniuci Tikomaimereke were shown the yellow card.

The two teams went to the halftime break at nil-all.

However Nadi returned with renewed spirits during the second half and finding the mark through hardworking striker Rusiate Matarerega after taking advantage of a defensive blunder by the Labasa side in the 10th minutes of the second half.

Labasa struggled to maintain its composure and Posiano Kalisito was shown the yellow card in the 29th minute of play.

Labasa tried hard in the remaining time to break the tough Nadi defence but never found a way through.

An overjoyed Nadi coach, Kamal Sami said he was happy with his boys performance and they played well in the wet ground conditions.

Sami said he was happy how his side performed especially as most of his key players could not make it for the match.

"We will face Suva next week and we still need to touch up on some of our ball skills," he said.

Meanwhile Labasa coach, Bal Reddy said he was happy with his side's performance even though they still needed to improve their fitness level.

Labasa faces Rewa in Viti Levu next week.
