Ready for Ba clash

STRIKE ace Samuela Drudru and Napolioni Qasevakatini will lead Nadi's attack when they take on Ba in the Vodafone Fiji FACT semi-final at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori tomorrow.

With Jone Salauneune and Rusiate Matarerega out of action, Drudru and Qasevakatini will have to shoulder the burden of penetrating the stubborn Ba defence which conceded only one goal at the pool stage last week.

Nadi team manager Kamlesh Sami said they were ready for the challenge against the Men in Black.

Sami said Ba held the upper hand having beaten them in the Pillay Garments Champion versus Champions decider and in the opening round of the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football Championship this year.

"We adopted a serious training program this week with two sessions a day," he said.

"Attendance has been good. Everyone knows that Ba is the champion team and when they reach the semi-final then there is no stopping them.

"For us we want to do the simple things right.

"The aim is to successfully defend the title which we have not done in this tournament previously.

"The boys will give it their best shot and we are requesting all our fans to turn up in big numbers to support them."

The semi-final will kick off at 3pm.
