SUVA has shifted its focus on to the National Football League (NFL) competition after finishing third in the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants tournament.

The All Freights Logistic-sponsored side defeated Ba 2-1 in the 3rd/4th place playoff at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

Suva coach Gurjit Singh said the focus was now on qualifying for the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) Champions League.

The Whites need a win from its remaining matches to qualify for the OFC competition for the first time.

Suva which leads the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna NFL points table on 27 points will play Rewa on September 14 and Ba on September 20.

"The national league is next and we have to start training for that. We can't relax because the national league is very important for us and in order to qualify for the O-League, we have to win one game. We have to really work hard for that," Singh said.

Yesterday, Singh used most of his reserved players and rested some senior players who were carrying niggling injuries.

The former national mentor also indicated strengthening his squad when the transfer window opens this month.

Singh said they have the support of the fans adding the team would bounce back in the upcoming Inter District Championship.

"I know most of them must be disappointed but they know how we lost. Everyone saw how we lost. They are behind us and still supporting the team."
