Rewa out to score goals

THE Rewa soccer side aims to score a couple of goals against Labasa tomorrow.

Coming off a nil-all draw against Ba last weekend, the Delta Tigers are itching to score goals to boost their chances of winning the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League.

Coach Marika Rodu said the idea was to win and gain maximum points in their home match at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

"While we would like to have a very good defence, we would also want to score goals," he said.

"We missed a lot of goal scoring chances against Ba. All opponents are very tough and we will not often be presented with goal-scoring opportunities.

"We will have to grab what little opportunity is available and turn it into goals, whether it is from general play or set pieces.

"So, we will be working on attacking scenarios and sharpening our finishing and rectifying our set pieces."

Rodu said they would miss the services of Lorima Dau and Ratu Luke Lomasalato because to card suspensions but the response of the rest of the players at training had been positive.

He said Labasa would be tough and a win would be very important for Rewa to move up the rankings.

"They play a different style of football. They will be quick and difficult to track.

"Like us they will also want to take home maximum points and will come up really strong.

"We need to move up the points ladder in order to keep the competition tough and title race interesting.

"We set targets every week and winning this game is very important. This match becomes the ultimate focus for the team and is the most important game for us in the whole competition."

The match kicks off at 7.30pm.
