The Rewa football team are working very hard on technical areas of their game before they face Lautoka at Churchill Park, on Sunday.

The Delta Tigers are eyeing for a win with the hope that Suva lose to Nadi because this could see them lift the Vodafone Premier League title for the first time.

Rewa coach Marika Rodu is well aware of how crucial this weekend’s matches are going to be.

“We are well-prepared for a good game against Lautoka,” Rodu said.

“We were also well aware of the circumstances surrounding the game. It has been a good year for Fijian football

“I can’t remember the last time when the national league had to be decided in the last game.

“These two games will decide the league winner and we are preparing well and hoping everything goes as planned.”

Rodu added that they were focused on improving their performance against Lautoka.

“Technical areas really made us panic many times I believe we will have to touch on that,” he said.

“I’m happy with the way the boys have handled pressure games and not to get frustrated, remain calm, enjoy the game and have fun.

“It’s all about taking our chances. We had a lot of that last week and that’s football.

“So this week we will encourage the boys and make sure that they have a good space in terms of mental preparations because we need to remain consistent.

“There are going to be a lot of surprises this weekend. Lautoka have good ball players and again it’s going to be a tough game.

“They have nothing to lose they might spoil our chances of winning by a draw or a win so they will come out firing. So it’s for us to manage the game.”

 

MENTAL APPROACH

The Navua football team need to work on their mental approach in their clash against Nasinu.

Navua coach Mohammed Shahfil highlighted this after their 3-1 loss to Lautoka, last Saturday. Navua took a 1-0 lead before they allowed the Blues to hit back.

“We need to work on our concentration,” he said. A win to Navua could see Nasinu being relegated to the Senior Division.
