Nadi coach sweating on Ravosai injury

By Sunil Sharma

Nadi coach Kamal Swamy is keeping his fingers cross on the recovery of central defender Eliki Ravosai who is carrying a hamstring injury.

The NCCL sponsored Nadi team coach said Ravosai is an experienced defender whose services will be needed for the upcoming Inkk Mobile Battle of Giants tournament which starts this Sunday at Labasa’s Subrail Park.

“He has been instrumental player for us and he’s been there with us well through the games so we hoping he gets better so we can maintain team consistency as much as possible,” Swamy said.   

The Khalsa College school teacher is hopeful of a better chance during the BOG.

“My players have gelled well together and a plus point for us is that none of the players have moved to other districts so the combination remains the same,” he said.
 
Stopper Ben Aminio and Ratu Josefata Dugucagi have been billed as favourites to captain the Jetsetters during the BOG.
 
Meanwhile, Nadi soccer interim boss Tarun Patel said National U23 sweeper Poasa Bainivalu’s fate will be decided in the next two days after he appealed his suspension.

“Bainivalu has been training with the rest of the squad and has been registered in Nadi’s BOG squad. We spoke to his parents yesterday and Bainivalu’s future with Nadi looks bright.

“Our executives will meet before the end of this week to consider Bainivalu’s appeal.”

Bainivalu was handed a 3-year suspension by Nadi for disciplinary reasons.

Nadi face Suva in their opening BOG fixture at 9am this Sunday at Subrail Park.
