Suva to focus on teamwork

SUVA coach Gurjit Singh wants his players to play more as a team in the final rounds of the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants at the ANZ Stadium this weekend.

The All Freight Logistics-sponsored side will face Rewa in the opening semi-final this Saturday at 3pm followed by the Ba versus Lautoka semis at 5pm.

Singh said they needed to focus on their approach ahead of the knockout stages.

"A lot still has to be done before the semi-final against Rewa. We have couple of days to work on those areas," Singh said.

"Playing more as a team is something we are lacking on. I will be working on that area this week and hope we improve on that."

Suva finished on top of Group A winning all its pool matches beating Nadroga 4-0, Navua 1-0 and Lautoka 1-0.

Singh said while the winless run in the group stage had set a good platform for the semi-finals, they cannot rely on those results to guide them through to the final.

On paper and form, the Whites are favoured over the Delta Tigers but Singh is wary of the new looking Rewa side.

"Rewa has a good mix of young and experienced players and they have fast strikers too," he said.

"We really need to play as a team and maintain our discipline to overcome them."

Utility Noa Vukica is the only player under an injury cloud and Singh hopes he is cleared to play this weekend.

Suva is expected to resume training this morning.
