The Kamal Swamy-coached Shop N Save Nadi side have made up their minds to run for their third OFC Champions League appearance next year.
The ‘Jetsetters’ are currently in second spot with 18 points behind the Fiji SUN/Skipper Tuna National Football League points table leaders Suva at 24 points.
Nadi Football Association president Navneeda Gounder said with their current work rate they aimed to finish in the top two since only the top two teams will be represented in the 2014/2015 OFC Champions League. “Definitely all teams want to be in the top two; we are there at the moment and hope to get great game results in future matches for the top two spot,” Gounder said.
“We are into the second half of the rounds left and will be working as a team from now onwards and the players know that.”
FFA competitions manager Amitesh Pal confirmed the Nadi – Navua match will now be played at 3pm on Saturday at Prince Charles Park, in Nadi, which was previously scheduled for Sunday.
Gounder said they would be looking to continue their winning form especially at their home ground.
“The boys have the fighting spirit now especially beating Ba last week; they know what to do especially when they are down,” Gounder added. “We expect the Nadi vocal crowd to be in great numbers as their presence will bolster the boys’ performance on the ground.”
Nadi have won six of the nine matches so far this season while Navua is at the tail end of the points table with four points after one win from nine games.
In their previous matches Nadi beat Ba 2-1, while Suva edged Navua 3-2 over the weekend.
