There will be no major celebration in Rewa’s Vodafone Fiji FACT victory as they have moved their focus to the Vodafone Premier League.

Association president Nazeel Buksh says the aim is to win the national league and also begin preparations for the Ink Mobile Battle of the Giants.

“We’re in the middle of the season. A very important season for Rewa. We’re in the middle of the national league and we’re just in top three aiming to win this national league. So any plans, we will be keeping in mind and must not disturb our preparation for league and BOG,” Buksh said.

He said the prize money of $15,000 belongs to the association and would not be shared amongst the players.

Under Buksh’s leadership Rewa is only left to win the National Premier League title.

It will be the repeat of Vodafone Fiji FACT semi-final this Sunday when Rewa takes on Labasa in the Vodafone Premier League,

The Rewa and Labasa match last weekend was tagged as the game of the tournament where the Delta Tigers won, 6-5.

Despite winning the Vodafone Fiji FACT tournament, Rewa football coach Marika Rodu says, they will need to come down to earth ahead of their Vodafone Premier League clash on Sunday.

Rodu said their win at the Fiji FACT played no part in their focus and preparation for the premier league. “It’s really important that we regroup after the weekend and the boys recover in time for our game,” Rodu said.

“While it was good that we won the Fiji FACT, playing in the premier league is a totally different competition altogether.”

He said every game from here on was going to be tough and every team would be out to win so they needed to step go up a notch.

Rodu said to be consistent was important if they were to win and moved up the points table.

“We need to make sure that we don’t drop in our level of performance but to keep improving and win our games. Consistency and keeping the momentum is very important, the boys need to focus on the next task ahead of them.” Facing Labasa he said was never an easy game as they had seen in the Fiji FACT. “I know they will not want to settle for anything less than a win.”

The players he said were fit to play and there were no major injuries.

“We will get back into the gear by tomorrow.”

Rewa will face Labasa at 3pm.
