Nadi wary of Ba

Maciu Malo
Thursday, July 17, 2014

SHOP n Save Nadi is hopeful of a better performance against 4R Electric Ba in the feature match of the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League tomorrow.

Team president Navneeda Goundar said the players needed to lift their game against the Men in Black. He said the side would use this game to settle a score against Ba.

Both teams met five times this year with Ba winning two, losing one while two ended in a draw.

Goundar said Ba would use this game to avenge their Fiji FACT semi-final loss.

"Players have been urged to lift their game as we need to bounce back after our 1-3 loss to Rewa last week," said Goundar.

"Ba is always a tough team to beat.

"And definitely they will field a very strong side to avenge their loss in the Fiji FACT."

Goundar said the major concern for his team was the injuries to three of their top players Amani Makoe, Ilimotama Jese and Eliki Ravosai.

"We are doing our best to help these boys recover in time," he said.

"But again there are other players on the side who are capable of replacing the trio for this much-awaited clash."

He said the side needed to win the game for their home fans.

The game kicks off at 7pm.
