Loss to Suva is a wake-up call: Singh

Ba manager Ranvir Singh says the 1-0 loss to Suva in their final Group A match of the 2020 Punjas Battle of the Giants on Sunday is a wake-up call for them.

He said with almost a week to prepare for the semifinals, things should improve and get better for the Men in Black.

“We wanted to qualify for the semifinals with an unbeaten record but the loss to Suva has somewhat affected our aim. But at the same time the loss comes as a wake-up call and we have to pull up our socks and prepare better.”

“We have one top player suspended while few others are carrying injuries. We hope to get things organised during the week and our coach will be preparing a game plan for the semifinal match.”

Singh said they will not ride high on the past success of the team and will just keep a low profile.

“We know Ba has won the BOG the most number of times. While we will be aiming to win our 19th title, we will not put ourselves under pressure and will just play according to our game plan,” he added.

Priceline Pharmacy sponsored- Ba will take on Delta One Auto Repairs sponsored- Rewa in the first semifinal at 2pm on Saturday at Lautoka’s Churchill Park.
