The Labasa team will try to win their Vodafone Premier League matches this week.

Labasa Football Association secretary Varun Anand yesterday said it would be tough winning two matches away from home after a long break.

“The continuous wet weather disrupted our training scheduled for Subrail Park, Labasa,” Anand said.

“The other factor is players are not turning up for training and fitness will be a factor..

“On Friday we play Suva at 7:30pm at Ratu Cakobau Park and Rewa on Sunday at 3pm.”

“Despite things not working on our favour,  we will to try to win both matches.

“We are requesting fans of ‘Babasiga Lions’ to come out in numbers to support the team.”

Uphill Battle For Dreketi

Dreketi Football Association president Nilesh Jaduram said they hope do their best in the Vodafone Premier League this weekend.

Dreketi play Rewa at 5:30pm at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on Friday and Suva on Sunday at 1pm.

“We have not trained for the past month after the game against Ba was called off due to the wet weather,”Jaduram said.

“We just started training this week Monday and only five players turned up.

“So we are going to play and try our best to perform but it will be an uphill battle because players are not fit,” he said.

Dreketi coach is Johan Leewai and the team is sixth on the standings with three points after playing three matches so far.
