Mental preparation is key: Prakash

Navua coach Amit Prakash has called on his players to mentally prepare ahead of the clash against Nadroga in round seven of the Digicel Premier League.

Prakash says while players will be spending time with loved ones, they need to start focusing on their match against Nadroga in the bottom of the table clash.

He said lockdown is a better time for the players to rest their minds and think about the past six matches they played and the areas they need to improve on.

“While players are doing personal training, I feel that getting mentally fit is also important. We want players to have a better thinking strategy while they are in a match. Players need to start focusing on Nadroga who are down and are just a few points away from us.”

“Most of the players are at home during this lockdown and I feel this is the correct time for them to go back to the first match and from there see how they played and areas they need to improve on. There were mistakes made and it's part and parcel of football but I’m sure the boys would be aware of what they have to do.”

“We don’t want to force players to keep training because, at this time, they need rest and spend time with their family. It’s understandable that in football when you talk about fitness it means giving some time off to your body rather than putting too much pressure and stress,” Prakash added.

The southerners are on the 7th spot with 5 points after three losses, two draws, and a win.
