Nadroga aims to upset Suva

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, August 06, 2014

THE Nadroga soccer team is confident of upsetting Suva in their Skipper Tuna national league games on Sunday.

Head coach Joseph Nand said the Stallions needed a win to improve their standings on the points table.

He said playing in front of their home fans would inspire his side to beat Suva.

"This is a very important game for us, it is a home game and we want to win for our fans," said Nand.

"We need a win to get away from the danger zone and the boys are aware of the huge task ahead of them.

"Suva is a good team and they will want to win after their loss to Labasa last week.

"The training turnout has been good and the boys are confident of our chances."

Nand said the side was bolstered with the return of their star striker John Rounds Junior at training.

"John is back with the team after being out for four months and he is raring to go."

"We are working on our combination and we are hopeful of a good outing against Suva."

The game will be held at Lawaqa Park on Sunday at 3pm.

The Gurjeet Singh-coached Suva side still leads the competition despite the loss to the Babasiga Lions last Sunday.

Suva faces Nadi at 7pm at the ANZ Stadium on Friday.
