SAVUSAVU is a step away from securing its spot in the super premier division after beating Seaqaqa on Saturday 4-0 to win the Northern Division's premier competition.

Even though the side lost to Dreketi 1-0 yesterday they will still face Tailevu Naitasiri next week at Ganilau Park followed by the second play-off at Ratu Cakobau Park to decide the premier national champion.

Savusavu Football association secretary Neeraj Lal said the side was looking forward to giving the Tailevu Naitasiri a run for their money.

Lal said winning the Tailevu Naitasiri matches was crucial for them as it would help them get a place in the Super League competitions.

"The side will now focus on the two crucial matches and we are confident that we can pull these two matches," he said.

"The side is well equipped with players such as Waisale Rasoki, Epeli Deyama and Etonia Bale and we are looking forward to giving the Tailevu Naitasiri side a run for their money.

"With the guidance of new coach Tony Kabakoro the team will start preparations for the match from tomorrow."

Lal said winning the Northern Division play-offs this year was quite an achievement for the side.

"However we are also hungry for a place in the Super League competition and we are confident that we can do this."

Game results for the weekend.

Results (Sunday): Seaqaqa 0 - 0 Nadogo; Savusavu 0 - 1 Dreketi

Saturday: Savusavu 4 - 0 Seaqaqa; Bua 0 - 3 Nadogo; Taveuni 0 - 4 Dreketi
