Suva scores late

Maciu Malo
Saturday, April 19, 2014

SUVA is confident of winning the Fiji Gujarati soccer IDC title which got underway in Lautoka yesterday.

Despite being held 1-all by Nadi in a physical encounter, the Capital City boys are hopeful to win their remaining round-robin matches to secure a spot in the elimination stages.

Super sub and former Suva rep Salesh Pala saved the day for Suva after scoring the equaliser in the later stage of the second spell.

Team manager Bashir Ahmed said the side had prepared well for the tournament and would give their best in their remaining games.

He said the team had gauged their standard during the first game and he urged his troops to improve their performance in their next game.

Ahmed said the players committed some basic mistakes during the first game.

"It was a physical game and I salute the players for their effort," said Ahmed.

"Nadi gave us a good game which exploited our weaknesses — something we need to improve on during our next game.

"We are confident of winning the competition and we will give all it takes to win the title."

Ahmed said all teams were aiming to win the title but the onus was on his troops to produce the goods. In other matches yesterday Lautoka lost 1-2 to Rewa and later played to a scoreless draw with Ba.
