BA is eager to complete its Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League round one schedule before the Vodafone Fiji FACT at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori later this month.

The 4R Electrical Men in Black proved too strong for Nadi winning 3-0 at Govind Park last Sunday.

Ba's remaining matches in round one are against Suva and Labasa.

Coach Yogendra Dutt said Sunday's win was crucial in their bid to gain one of the two spots for the Oceania Champions League next season.

"We had two matches remaining in the first round and if we get the opportunity to play before the Fiji FACT then it will be good for us," he said.

"It will also be a good hit out for the other teams as well before the first major tournament.

Suva leads the competition with 18 points from six matches.

Nadi is at second position with 15 points, followed by Ba with 13 points, Labasa with 12 points, Rewa with eight points, Nadroga with four points and Lautoka and Navua tied with three points each.

The group stage of the Fiji FACT will be played from June 20-22.

The semi-finals and final will be held from June 28-29.
