High card count worries Khan

Suva Coach Babs Khan is concerned with the number of red and yellow cards copped by his players in defending the Digicel Fiji FACT and in the nine rounds of the Digicel Premier League.
 
Khan said they will need to work on their discipline and rectify mistakes ahead of Round 10 of the DPL.
 
 "We copped a lot of yellow and red cards which was a factor affecting our performance."
 
"Suva had a good start in the league but the cards deterred our discipline on the field."
 
"We aimed for a clean match at the Fiji FACT but that did not go as per our plan."
 
"I think we lost our common understanding and became very physical which resulted in the cards."
 
"We have gone back and seen our discipline and I think we often forget to control ourselves on the field and get the cards," Khan explained.
 
Suva is leading the DPL standing and he also said the team's performance will reflect the results.
 
"The boys are in their full form but we have to have the right discipline."
 
"We need to have the right mindset before taking the pitch and then only things will turn right."
 
"Our performance at Fiji FACT was good but something happened in the final which should not have happened."
 
"I think the players lost focus in the final minutes and those minutes were crucial even though we were winning. We will need to avoid all that upon the starting of the league," he said.
 
Ram's Cleaning Services/All Freight Logistics Suva will take on Lautoka at 3pm at Churchill Park on Sunday.
