Proper preparation is right at the top of the Nadi football team’s list as they take on Ba in this weekend’s Digicel Premier League clash.

Nadi coach, Shalen Lal said, this is a must as they are playing against a champion side like Ba, this weekend.

Lal said with centre back, Serevi Waqa being ruled out because of a red card they are going to assess the availability of their players before they start their preparation.

“We really have to prepare well because we will not have Serevi Waqa in defence,” he said.

Ba beat Suva 2-1 in their last DPL match.

 

Ravia praised

Meanhile, Lal praised rookie goalkeeper, Tevita Ravia, for a fine performance despite coming in as a late repalcement.

Ravia replaced Vereti Dickson after he was ruled out because of injury.

It was in the last minute of the game that Ravia saved us after tapping the ball out as it was going in.

“We would have lost the game if it was not for Tevita,” Lal said.

He said they were psychologically disturbed because while they were preparing Vereti got. It was during our final warm-up and had to be replaced.

“Vereti injured his knee and we had to pull him off,” Lal said.

He said Ravia’s performance is an indication that their development programme is working.
