RAKIRAKI is eager to turn the tables against high flying Tailevu Naitasiri in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League premier division at Buckhurst Park in Suva on Sunday.

The Rakiraki team lost to Tailevu Naitasiri 4-1 in the opening round.

Veterans Jale Vota, Ili Gaunavou Junior and Asaeli Combuta will guide the Haroon's Hardware sponsored team.

Rakiraki Football Association president Shaneel Gounder said majority of the players in the team were young.

Gounder says they are aiming for a win.

"This match will be the turning point for us," he said.

"We lost to Tailevu Naitasiri in round one and we will be out to avenge it. Most of our senior players reside out of town so it has been difficult to get them to train as a unit.

"However despite the shortfalls, we will give Tailevu Naitasiri a tough time."

Tailevu Naitasiri will go into the match as favourites. The side is unbeaten in the competition. Tailevu Naitasiti leads with 19 points from seven matches. Lami is second with 15 points followed by Nasinu with 14 points and Rakiraki with 13 points.

In another match on Sunday, Vatukoula will host Nasinu at Theodore Park.
