Savusavu chases a draw in opener

By Sunil Sharma

The Savusavu football team will aiming for a draw against Tailevu Naitasiri in the opening leg of the Promotion Relegation series at Ratu Cakobau Park this Sunday.

Coach Manoj Lal told FijiLive today that their preparation has not been going on well as they were not anticipating to play in the series initially.

"Since our preparation has not been the best, we will just go for a draw in the opening match and then try to win the second match at home," he said.

"Fitness is an issue for us as most of the players are still not in shape, therefore we would not be forcing the boys to go all attacking. We will see how things eventuate on the field on the given day."

"Tailevu Naitasiri is a very consistent and fit team and will surely give us a good game on its home soil."

Veteran defenders Pene Erenio and Epeli Deyama together with Waisale Rasoki, Thomas Vulivuli, Akuila Bulewa and Kaivesu Qalo will carry the hopes of the Northerners.

The Savusavu vs Tailevu Naitasiri match will kick-off at 3pm on Sunday with the return leg to be held on the following Sunday at Ganilau Park.
