Stay grounded, stay focused, use the 14 days containment period to have a look at what we need to do when the Digicel Premier League resumes, says Navua coach Amit Prakash.

He made the comment after reviewing their 1-0 win over Ba followed by their courageous fightback to hold Nadi 2-2.

And hoping to continue on that run against Nadroga, last weekend, every­thing came to an abrupt halt due to COV­ID-19 restrictions.

Speaking to SUNsports, coach Amit Prakash said they wanted to win their remaining matches.

“We want to keep this momentum going and remain consistent when the DPL re­sumes,” he said.

“I have reminded the boys to use this time to reset their goals and of course do their personal training at home.

“We really need to dig deep because we know that our players have the capabil­ity to do better in the DPL.

“I hope this 14-days lockdown will knock some sense into the players so they can start to take things seriously when they return.

“The plan now is to start winning the rest of our games and try to reach the top five or four position on the table.”

“We don’t want to return to the senior division because it’s hard to start from scratch.”

Heading to the game against Nadroga Prakash believes his players need proper recovery.

“I believe recovery sessions are very important heading into our next game,” he said.

“They have been advised to have good early sleep to get their body recovered. “We have to strengthen our side in most areas and the plan now is not to lose in our remaining matches since we have started winning.
