THE Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League clash between Nadi and Labasa which was supposed to be played at Prince Charles Park this Sunday has been postponed to a later date.

Fiji Football Association competitions manager Amitesh Pal said the teams had requested for more recovery time after the completion of the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants at the ANZ Stadium last Sunday.

Pal said the league would resume with the Suva versus Rewa match at Ratu Cakabau Park in Nausori next Wednesday.

Both teams failed to reach the semi-final of the BOG after being bundled out at the pool stage.

Nadi which is in contention for a spot at next year's Oceania Champions League is tied with Ba with 22 points.

However, the Men in Black hold a better goal differential and have three matches in hand compared with Nadi's two.

Suva leads the competition with 27 points with three more matches to play.

A win against Rewa will seal their spot at the 2015 Oceania Champions League.
