It will be a battle of the giant-killers as Nasinu hosts Navua in the Vodafone Premier League clash at Ratu Cakobau Park this Sunday.

Nasinu head coach Tagi Vonolagi said their win against Ba last week was a morale booster for the team.

Vonolagi said he needed to wok more on the fitness level to respond a fire-powered Navua this week.

“I just need to work on our fitness and also build up more players as we have a lot of them playing in the premier division for the first time,” he said.

“Navua is a good team.

“They have a lot of fire-power in their team, that’s why we need to improve on our fitness so that we can respond to them during the game.”

Navua coach Sailosi Danford said defense is the problem in his team.

“Our backline is still a problem and I hope to work more with our senior players to iron that out.

“I think we missed the leadership role in the middle against Lautoka we had our 17-year-old Thomas Dunn starting in the middle, and we are glad that Vineet will be back this week,” Danford said after their 2-1 loss to the Blues last week.

“It’s a huge mountain for us against Nasinu as it will be the last game of the round.”

Nasinu Football Association president O’neil Chand is calling out for the fans to support the team this week.

“I’m calling out to all the Nasinu fans to come and watch a thrilling football this week in Nausori.

“From what we saw against Ba last week, it will definitely be a game to watch and I can assure you all that the boys will give out their best against Navua,” Chand said.
