Vatukoula out to break jinx

THE Senirusi Seruvakula-coached Vatukoula team will be out to break a three-year winless jinx against Tavua in the Skipper Cup competition at Garvey Park this Saturday.

The Goldminers haven't won against Tavua in recent years.

Vatukoula went down to Nadi 22-19 last Saturday after leading at half-time.

Coach Seruvakula said there were a lot of indiscipline and the boys lacked composure and concentration.

"We dominated the first-half and the beginning of the second-half but did not capitalise on the opportunities," he said.

"We have got the strength but discipline is one area we have to work on. The boys have to focus on that."

The former national rep has dubbed this Saturday's local derby as their toughest game of the season.

"If we can't keep our discipline, then we will lose concentration during the game. The game against Tavua will be the hardest game.

"We haven't won from them three years in a row so we will try our best to turn things around."

Tavua is reeling at the bottom of the competition points table with no wins from three matches.

Vatukoula is on ninth position ahead of Ovalau and Macuata.
