He’s pleading for Suva fans to show their support.

“I want to thank the fans who have been with us during our pool games and I want more to turn up in num­bers on Saturday,” Kumar said.

“We will need to map a plan against Ba and I’m confident the boys can rise again.

“But first we need to recover well and the players’ welfare para­mount.”

Suva managed to reach the semi­final after securing a 1-1 draw against Lautoka denying Labasa a spot in the knockout rounds.

Lautoka vs Nadi

Lautoka Coach Kamal Swamy said:

“We need to prepare for Nadi, they are a good side. We need to work hard during training in the next few days.

“Yes, it will be a pressure game, we have not won FACT for a long time and we will try our best to do good so that we can bring some glory to the Blues fans.’
