The Rewa football side fo­cuses on getting maxi­mum points to reach top position on the Vodafone Pre­mier League(VPL) points table.

The ‘Delta Tigers’ will take on Ba at 3pm on Sunday at while at 1:30pm Dreketi takes on Tavua at Sub­rail Park.

Speaking to SUN sports yester­day, Rewa FA president Nazeel Buksh said preparations were on top as they focus on seizing goal scoring opportunities.

“With every weeks game it is becoming very critical of get­ting the points, to retain a top position on the league table,” Buksh said.

“At this time our position in the league’s points table is very critical and the players are aware of how important it is to secure a win in each week’s game and at the same time col­lecting maximum points.

“And with the level of com­petition from each team, it is becoming really crucial for us to improve our performance and standard of play. But at the same time we are trying our best to bounce back to the top position.

“So, from now onwards a win in all the games we play is a must as we want to win the VPL title and qualify for the cham­pion’s league.

“We are expecting a tough game against Ba this weekend as we are aware they would come prepared after competing in the Oceania Football Con­federation championship last week.

“But nevertheless our boys had ample week long break to prepare and reflect themselves on where we are heading off as a team now.

“One crucial area that the side will be looking at improving the team’s performance would be seizing goal scoring opportuni­ties as previously in our game against Lautoka and Labasa we didn’t score any goal so we real­ly need to work on our attacking skills this week.

“I would like to urge to all the Delta Tiger fans to please come out in numbers and support the side this weekend as their sup­port will be a great source of en­couragement for the side.”
