Hungry for a win

Maciu Malo
Saturday, March 29, 2014

THE Tavua soccer team is going into this afternoon's clash against Nasinu in the Skipper Tuna premier league hungry for a win.

Interim president Tulsi Ram said the side needed a win to keep its hopes alive of winning the competition.

He said the side had won only one game from three matches and they were hopeful of securing their second win against the Southerners.

Ram said he was pleased with the players attitude at training and had called on fans to come out to support the boys.

He said the players would be boosted with the presence of their home fans.

"Playing on home turf will be a huge advantage for the boys as they chase their second win the competition," said Ram.

"I am impressed with the commitment shown by the players during training and they are looking forward to the game.

"We have won only one game so far this season and we want to win our second game in front of our fans."

Ram said the ultimate goal of the team was to win back their spot in the Super Premier competition after being relegated from the division last year.

"The team is run by a new set of officials and we have set our aims on securing our spot alongside the giants of Fiji soccer.

"This team is in its rebuilding stages and hopefully we will fulfil our goal by next year — but we will keep trying to give our best shot for this season."

The game will be held at Garvey Park starting at 3pm.
