League leaders feel the heat

SUVA soccer coach Gurjeet Singh says his side will be at a disadvantage against Nadi today.

The two teams meet in the top-of-the-table clash on Nadi's Prince Charles Park in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League competition.

Singh said while they lead the table with 12 points from five wins in as many games, they would not take Nadi lightly.

The Jetsetters are second on the table with nine points after winning all three of their games so far.

"This is a very important game for both sides but Nadi will have an edge over Suva," Singh said.

"This is because they are playing on their home ground, the ground is hard and we are playing at 4pm in the afternoon, and you know it's still quite hot at that time in the Western Division.

"So Suva is going into the match with a disadvantage but it will definitely be a good game to watch."

He said goalkeeper Emori Ragata would miss the match as a result of a red card two weeks ago.

"A red card is a two-match suspension and he missed our last game and will have to miss this one as well.

"Ulaiasi Tamanisau will be our man in goal while Samuela Drudru will lead upfront."

Drudru is the top goal scorer for the competition with six goals from five matches.
