SUVA'S Inia Boko is leading the race for the Golden Boot award in the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants tournament.

With the final rounds of games to be played this weekend at the ANZ Stadium in Suva, Boko tops the goal scorers tally on four goals.

According to the official match stats, the former Navua player scored a hat-trick against Nadroga before netting one against Lautoka. Lautoka's Ratu Dugucagi is second with two goals.

Fiji Football Association competitions manager Amitesh Pal said 20 goals were scored in the group stage of the competition which had a total of 12 games played.

"The fans managed to see some good goals in the group stage. The two highest scoring games were Suva defeating Nadroga by 4-0 and Ba's 4-1 win over Labasa," Pal said.

"There were also some quality goals scored by these two teams and with Suva and Ba in the semi-finals; we are expecting even better performances in the final rounds."

According to Pal, only two red cards were flashed in the opening three days of the tournament at Ba's Govind Park.

He said there were 38 cautions (yellow cards) in the group stage of the competition.

"The yellow card count is normal but the red cards have decreased which is a good sign," Pal said.

Ba's Praneel Naidu will be the only player to miss the semi-final this Saturday after copping consecutive yellow cards last weekend.

Unbeaten Suva and Rewa, which are yet to concede a goal, will play in the first semi-final at 3pm followed by the Ba versus Lautoka semis at 5pm.

The 3rd/4th place playoff will be held at 1pm while the final is scheduled for 3pm on Sunday.
