Dreloa in doubt

THE Suva football side is hoping star defender Jale Dreloa recovers on time for the Vodafone Fiji FACT semi-final against Labasa today.

The Whites will take on the Babasiga Lions at 5pm at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

Ba will play defending champions Nadi in the opening semis at 3pm.

The South Seas Logistic Suva is the only unbeaten team in the tournament but coach Gurjit Singh said the match against Labasa would be their toughest.

He said Waisake Navunigasau and Leone Damudamu were the other players carrying injury.

"This will be a very important game for us and for me, this will be the toughest game. Labasa has been playing well and they are a very good side," Singh said.

"Our major concern is the injuries to those three players. Jale is the biggest worry because has groin injury and it has been his problem for some time."

Dreloa, the Vodafone Fiji under-20 skipper, has been a regular for the Suva side since last year.

Singh said Dreloa's services would be missed, but if he did not recover on time, he had players in the team to fill the void.

"We have Tomasi Uculoa who is a suitable replacement but we hope Jale recovers on time."

Singh said the team had been working on fine-tuning its combination this week.

He called on the fans to come out in numbers and support the side.

"Labasa will obviously have a huge support so we request the Suva fans to come out in numbers because we need their support in this game."
