After a scoreless match against Nadi last Saturday, Suva football is focused on utilising goal-scoring opportunities in this week’s round of Vodafone Premier League match.

The Capital City side will take on Tavua at Garvey Park on Sunday at 3pm.

Speaking to SUN sports yesterday, newly appointed Suva coach Tuka Tisam said preparations are on track as they look forward to gain maximum points this week.

“Our preparations are coming on accordingly but we are expecting a tough game against Tavua as the match will be played in their home ground,” Tisam said.

“So we are hoping to get the maximum points from this match so we could at least retain our position back on the leagues table.

“My experience with the team in their first match last weekend was a great one for me however I am still trying to know the quality of the players and gel into the team as soon as possible.

“I am also focused on playing the Suva’s style of football as that’s what the players are used to.

“One major aspect of the game that I analysed from our last match against Nadi was that we lacked to work on creating goal scoring opportunities for the side. And hopefully we improve on that area this week.

“There will be no major changes to the team’s lineout as we will stick to the same group of players.

“I would like to urge all the Suva fans to please come out in numbers and support the side on Sunday at Garvey Park.”

Meanwhile, in other matches Labasa host Ba at Subrail Park on Saturday at 1:30pm and on Sunday Dreketi takes on Ba at the same venue.
