What happened: After a 4-0 grand start against Nadroga on Friday, the All Freight Logistics Suva scored their second win yesterday.

Suva defeated Navua 1-0 during the second day of the Inkk Mobile Battle of Giants tournament at Govind Park in Ba.

The match started on a slow note, however Suva kept the pressure on but missed a number of opportunities.

The match remained scoreless at halftime.

Suva returned strongly in the second half camping well in Navua’s territory breaking past their defence but failed to connect.

Star play: Suva’s striking force showed their commitment and determination breaking Navua’s defence and to remain as Pool A leaders with maximum average goals scored.

Big play: Striker Ravinesh Singh slotted the lone goal for his side in the 86th minute after Navua defenders fumbled to clear the ball giving Singh the opportunity to put Suva on the score board.

Comments:

Suva Coach, Gurjit Singh: “I knew it will be a tough match as Navua had lost one match and would come out strong to prove that they can be a Super Premier team.

“The hot weather was a major problem for both the sides. We came out strong in the second half and missed on a couple of opportunities.

Navua Football president Gopal Naidu: “We missed the services of our two key players Seveci Rokotakala and Praneel Kumar.

He said the side lacks the finishing upfront.

“We played a very defensive game as we wanted to settle for a draw but it was through our blunder which proved costly.

“Our next game is against Nadroga and we will give our very best to win that match,’’ Naidu said.
