The Kamal Swamy-coached Shop N Save Nadi side is keeping their fingers crossed in a bid to qualify for the 2014/2015 OFC Champions League season.

This is despite being held scoreless by Labasa in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League match at Prince Charles Park in Nadi on Monday night at 7pm.

The Jetsetters fans have started praying for a win over neighbours Lautoka tomorrow night, which is their final match of the season.

“We had a lot of chances to score in that match and we missed. We have few days left to iron out our mistakes,” said Nadi team director Javed Ahmed.

“We have to step up our game because we need to beat Lautoka with the hope for the O-League and we just cannot simply afford to lose at home.

“We hope that Suva beats Ba on Saturday so we can be in contention for the OFC Champions League next season, but we have to wait.”

Meanwhile, Nadi defender Ame Votoniu will miss out this crucial match after copping a red card against Labasa’s Sandeep Nair. Suva has been crowned the new winner and leads with 33 points, ahead of Ba (25), Nadi (23), Labasa (21) while Rewa (18).

In the other matches on Saturday, 4R Electrical Ba host Suva at Govind Park in Ba at 3pm, Lautoka host Navua at Churchill Park, Rewa host Nadroga at Ratu Cakobau Park.
