DARK horse Rarawai has secured a spot in the Fiji Muslim League IDC quarter-final to be played this morning at Xavier College ground in Ba.

The side will face Nadi in the quarters after thumping Rewa 6-0 in the pool game before being held to a scoreless draw by Sigatoka.

Rarawai also drew nil-all in their last pool game against Lautoka and finished the pool as runners-up to Lautoka.

Team manager Mohammed Fariaz said the side would leave no stone unturned for the game against Nadi.

"The boys have been told to make use of this opportunity and to beat Nadi in the quarter-final," he said.

"We know what to expect knowing Nadi is on top form.

"The boys were told to treat the game as the final and play their hearts out."

Fariaz said the side was hopeful of a good outing in the quarter-final as it set focus on winning the tournament.

"Like all other participating teams we are here to win."

"Nadi is a good team but I have faith in my players that they will give Nadi a good run for their money."

Other teams that have secured their spot in the quarter-finals are Lautoka and Valelevu.

In yesterday's game Varavu thumped Suva 6-1, Nadi beat Tavua 5-0, Rewa defeated Sigatoka 1-0 Makoi downed Maro 2-1 while Valelevu thumped Maro 5-0.
