A must win game

Maciu Malo
Thursday, July 24, 2014

NADI needs to beat Lautoka to maintain its spot in the Skipper Tuna competition Top 4 spot, says head coach Iliesa Tanivula.

The former All Blacks 7s player said the Jetsetters would treat this crucial game like any other game in the competition.

He said the Sugar City boys were always unpredictable and competitive.

"We just got to win to maintain our spot in the Top 4," said Tanivula.

"This game is important to us because it prepare us for the other important games ahead.

"Lautoka is always competitive but we will not be focusing on them instead we will be concentrating on our game.

He said the side needed to improve their performance from where they left off against Suva last week.

"We played well in the first spell but a lapse of concentration allowed Suva to score their points.

"We need to be ruthless for the 80 minutes. We have to be dominant in all the set pieces and to lay the platform for our backs to have quality balls.

"The boys need to be mentally fit against Lautoka and we cannot afford to commit the same mistake we did against Suva."

Tanivula said the boys were ready for the game and would give their utmost best to achieve their aim of retaining their spot in the Top 4.

Meanwhile, Lautoka also need a win to avoid playing in the promotion relegation. The Maroons and Macuata are on the bottom end of the points table with 7 points each.

The game will be held at Lautoka's Churchill Park.
