Rewa will bounce back, says Kumar

By Sunil Sharma
 
Coach Manoj Kumar  is confident about Rewa's chances in its remaining pool matches and says the defending FACT champions will bounce back at home.

Kumar who guided Rewa to victories before joining Suva last season said it was good to be back and he would love to see the Delta Tigers win on their home soil.

"The Lautoka match will be left behind now as we will focus on the remaining matches."

"The crowd will be there to support us so it is important for us to win at home and keep the fans happy."

Kumar denied there was a rift between the players and officials and said all issues have been ironed out.

"Everything is good in camp and I can confirm there is no rift or anything like that. Everyone is happy and is chasing the same goal- which is to retain the FACT title."

"I will be working with my co-coach Rizwaan Ali to fine tune our goal scoring department. The strikers missed so many opportunities at goal and we cannot afford to ignore this because we need goals to win matches."

Rewa will face Suva in its second match this Thursday at 9.15pm.

A loss in the fixture will the dash the hopes of the hosts.
