BA is looking forward to finish on a high today when it takes Suva in the INNK Mobile Battle of the Giants 3rd/4th place playoff at the ANZ Stadium at 1pm.

After losing to underdogs Lautoka 4-5 in the semi-final which was decided by penalty kicks, Ba will play for pride in the playoff.

Ba Football Association secretary Iliaz Khan said they were unfortunate to lose in the semi-final.

"As we said before, we respect all teams and the boys played their hearts out but unfortunately we went into penalty kicks and luck was not on our side," Khan said.

"I want to thank the Almighty for giving us the strength and the vanua of Ba for the support. We may have hurt the feelings of the fans and we are sorry for that."

Khan said their plan was to seal the match in the 90 minutes of play.

"Penalty shootout is anybody's game and congratulations to Lautoka for the win. We are looking forward to the third place playoff."
