National football head coach Flemming Serritslev is ex­pecting a good outing in the Digicel Fiji FACT semifinals on Saturday at Lawaqa Park, Si­gatoka.

The 4R Electrical Labasa takes on R.C. Manubhai Ba at 2.30pm in the first semifinal, followed by defend­ing champions Ram Cleaning Ser­vices/ All Freight Logistics Suva taking on Baker’s Fresh Breakfast Crackers Lautoka at 5pm. Ser­ritslev indicated there were some good matches played over the weekend.

He said teams like Koromakawa Rentals & Tours Navua and All in One Builders Nadi displayed im­provements during the competi­tion.

“It will be a very exciting semifi­nal,” Serritslev said.

“We have had some other good teams. Even though Navua was out of the competition, they tried their best to win the game. Also La­basa versus Nadi was a very good match.”

The head coach helped the Ba­basiga Lions during their training last week, in the absence of coach, Ravneel Pratap.

“They were without their coach, who went back to take care of his job as a teacher,” Serritslev said.

“We worked on fast transition and on physical abilities.”

While he has not identified any new players yet, he hopes to hold a training camp on June 17 to pre­pare for some friendly games.

“We are watching all games, of course until now there has not re­ally any new players except for the players we already have. But we will give them a chance at the training camp if they are identi­fied,” he said.
