Money woes irk Nasinu

THE Nasinu soccer side is facing financial difficulties as it prepares to travel to north Viti Levu for two matches this weekend.

The side is scheduled to face Tavua at Garvey Park on Saturday and Rakiraki at FSC ground on Sunday. However, coach Abdul Zaman said they only had enough money to feature in one game this weekend.

"We are facing financial difficulties and administration difficulties because we have no president at the moment," he said.

"Also we don't have enough money for transport and accommodation while we are there for two days."

Zaman said he would try to convince Fiji Football Association to have one match postponed.

"It will be difficult because we are required to play but I am hopeful they will listen to our plea.

Last weekend, Nasinu came from behind to draw 3-all with Tailevu Naitasiri.

"We were down 0-2 at half time and I had a chat with the boys and then we scored and then Tailevu Naitasiri scored so then we were 1-3 with 10 minutes to go.

"But I made some tactical changes, we played with four strikers, four mid-fielders and only two defenders and managed to score goals and draw the match."
