Despite being second last on the points table with seven points, Nadroga will be out to upset All Freight Logistics Suva on Sunday in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League at Lawaqa Park.
Former Nadroga Football president Dr Dhirend Lal is the new team director. The team currently is second last on the points table with seven points.
“I started last week before our game against Nadi where we drew,”Dr Lal said.
“I have been called in to assist the team to avoid drop to premier grade.
“Nadroga will be a rejuvenated side with our youths involved.”
Dr Lal said the reason for the youths’ inclusion was because senior players were not turning up.
Meanwhile, after Suva’s first loss over the weekend, they will be playing two games this week with their first tonight at ANZ Stadium against Nadi.
All Freight Logistics Suva coach Gurjit Singh said every game now is important as they fight to stay in first place and qualify for the Oceania Champions League.
“Nadroga will be unpredictable, especially playing in their home ground.
We will still field our best 11 despite losing Dreloa and Tuivuna,” he said. Suva plays Nadroga at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka at 3pm on Sunday.
