“We controlled the game well, had most of the possession but we failed to score,” said Nadi Football Association president Javed Ahmed.

Nadi moved to the top of the Vodafone Premier League standings despite a goalless draw away at Rewa yesterday afternoon.

The second round of matches was again marred by postponements and bad weather as both teams failed to score under cloudy conditions at Ratu Cakobau Park.

Nadi began the match on the front foot and stayed that way throughout. But the westerners could not emulate the impressive win in the opening round against Ba last month.

Nadi football president Javed Ahmed rued his team’s missed chances and felt the control displayed by Nadi should have been converted into a win.

“We controlled the game well had most of the possession but we failed to score,” Ahmed said.

Playing at home for the second time this season, Rewa struggled against the physicality of the visitors, despite debuts for new additions, Josefata Neibuli, Setareki Hughes and Siotame Kubu.

The Delta Tigers have made a disappointing start to the season and have only taken one point from a possible six at home.

Rewa Football Nazeel Buksh was happy with the point, saying disruptions during the transfer window and the bad weather leading up to the game affected preparations.
