Suva’s match day lineup was boosted by the return of striker Peniasi Rotidara and midfielder Ramzan Khan, and the Dave Radrigai captained side entered the field with more experience.

After a goal-less first half, the tempo of the game lifted in the second stanza with young Lal netting the first goal, giving Suva goalie Hasmukh Patel no chance at all.

Chand doubled the advantage for the Sky Blues before Merrill Nand entered the field for the Whites and pulled one back late in the encounter.
