The wet weather in the West­ern Division last week has disrupted the Ba football team’s preparations for the Voda­fone Fiji FACT starting this Fri­day, an official says.

Ba team manager, Avind Singh, says he hopes the weather would clear out soon so the 22-member squad can resume normal training.

Despite the disruptions, Singh said the team was optimistic of a good outing at Lautoka’s Churchill Park.

The manager said the players went into camp yesterday and de­spite the heavy downpour, would continue their training to be men­tally and physically prepared.

“Only for training purposes, it is very hard to go out on the field and train because of this continuous rain,” he said.

“The boys have been training but the rain is spoiling the training be­cause we can’t even use any small ground and this is a major problem at the moment.

“We have the same team those who had played in the league game and the O League game.”

Singh is also hoping injured play­ers Narendra Rao and Kishan Sami can recover on time for the tourna­ment.

Ba is pooled with Nasinu, Nadi and defending champions Rewa.

“We are focused on our team doing well and we have tried to get all the boys together,” Singh said.

“We have to work hard mentally and physically to be fit to take part in this major tournament.”

Singh added the Ba team would not be taking other teams lightly.

As the only undefeated team in the Vodafone Premier League after four matches this season, Ba is one of the favorites to win the tourna­ment this year.

The westerners are also looking to put their disappointing OFC Cham­pions League quarterfinal exit be­hind them.
