JACK'S Nadi anticipates an uphill battle against Naitasiri in the much-anticipated Skipper Cup semi-final encounter at Ratu Cakobau tomorrow.

Head coach Iliesa Tanivula said the Highlanders would be a tough nut to crack on their home turf.

The former New Zealand 7s rep said Naitasiri would also want a win for their home fans.

"Naitasiri has been playing well this season to finish second on the points table," said Tanivula.

"It will be an uphill battle for us to beat them on their home turf.

"Naitasiri is always tough team and we expect a strong game on Saturday.

"But then again we will be going there with the will to win."

Tanivula said his players were ready for the battle.

"We will be concentrating on executing our game plan and the boys are looking forward to the game."

"I believe the hunger for a win will contribute to the outcome of the game."

Nadi lost to Naitasiri during the round robin games and the Jetsetters will be using this battle to avenge their loss and to also improve from their last year's performance of reaching the semi-final.

Some of the players who are expected to feature for the Jetsetters are former national reps Kelepi Ketedromo, Aminiasi Nava, Vilive Aria and big boots Venisemani Ratubalavu.

The game kicks off at 3pm.
