We have to lift our game: Lal

Labasa Coach Ronil Lal says they will have to lift their game against Nasinu if they are to qualify for the semifinals.

Lal said the tough match against Ba on Saturday which ended in a 1-1 draw helped him identify both the strengths and weaknesses of the team and he will map out an effective game-plan to counter the giant killers.

“Nasinu after beating Suva will be very tough to beat. We have a lot of respect for them and they have some very good ball players.”
“Just like us, they also have a chance to qualify so it will be a very crucial game for both teams. We have to work on all our mistakes and come out stronger.”

Lal admits they still lack in the finishing aspect of the game and strikers really need to start scoring to build their confidence.

“Yes, finishing still remains an area of concern for us. I hope the strikers will start scoring against Nasinu. We cannot win games if we do not score. I will be spending more time with the strikers and we hope things will get better.”

The Sharma’s Investment USA sponsored- Labasa has two draws and will need a win over Go Fry sponsored- Nasinu to book its place in the semifinals.
