BA will miss the services of three key players for the top of table Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football Association clash against Suva on Sunday.

Abbu Zahid Shaheed and Maciu Dunadamu are away in New Zealand while Osea Vakatalesau is still recovering from an injury he sustained at the Oceania Football Confederation Champions League playoffs.

Ba team manager Arvin Singh said they had a slow start to training after the Fiji FACT break. Singh said it would be a classic match with great rivalry between the two teams.

"We are aware that the Suva players were in camp since the Fiji FACT," he said.

"So they will be well prepared.

"We will miss some of our experienced players but the boy's from the under-20 squad will fill the vacuum."

Both teams have played six matches in the competition.

Suva leads with 18 points having won all the games while Ba has 16 points after recording five wins and a draw.

Singh said both teams would be out to maintain their unbeaten record.

"This year's competition is very tight," he said.

"The teams want to finish at the top to secure a spot in next year's OFC Champions League."

The match will kick off at 3pm.

Prior to that Nadroga will battle Navua at 1pm at the same venue.

Also on Sunday, Labasa will host Lautoka at 1pm while Nadi will play Rewa at Prince Charles Park at 3pm.
