Swamy aims for second spot in league

THE Kamal Swamy-coached Nadi side will be aiming to maintain its second position in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League when it takes on Navua at Prince Charles Park this afternoon.

Nadi defeated Navua 3-1 in the opening round and goes into the match as the favourite after downing defending champions Ba 2-1 last Friday.

However the Shop N Save-sponsored team will adopt a cautious approach against the southerners.

Team manager Kamlesh Sami said they would not underestimate Navua.

Sami said the fans had regained confidence in the team after the shock 3-1 loss to Rewa a fortnight ago.

"Navua will be unpredictable," he said.

"They only lost to league leaders Suva by a goal.

"So we have to be wary of what they can produce and won't take them lightly."

Nadi is on second position in the competition and a win will push them to within three points of the leader Suva.

In other matches today, Labasa will host Rewa while Ba will face Nadroga at Govind Park.
