Suva aim for a positive result tonight when they take on Lautoka in the Vodafone Premier League at  Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori.

Playing two games this weekend with the second against Ba on Sunday will be a tough challenge for the capital side.

“We have two very tough games against two top teams so it will not be easy for us,” Singh said.

“Both these teams have the advantage because they only have to play one game but none the less we are preparing accordingly for the competition.”

With the recent transfer window, Suva are expected to undergo some changes within the team with two players already confirmed to leave.

“We have been training hard and we will be affected by a few players who have moved.

“Samuela Drudru and Beniamino Mateinaqara have moved to Lautoka,” he said.

“Also Nickel Chand will be missing the game against Lautoka due to a yellow card but we got other players on the bench who will be given the chance to prove themselves.

“A lot of players have shown interest in joining the team and we have to get in new players because some have moved but still we won’t know anything regarding the transfer window until the end of the month.”

Meanwhile, suspended Suva defender Sakaraia Naisua is training with the team. Singh said Suva would be paying his $10,000 fine which he copped for breaking camp with the Fijian Under-23 side before the Rio Olympics.

“We will be paying for his fine and he has already joined camp and has been training with us.”
