Digicel National football Head Coach Flemming Serritslev has praised Tailevu/Naitasiri's performance after holding defending Digicel Premier League champs Lautoka to a 2-all draw, over the weekend.
Serritslev said playing with 10 players, Naitasiri proved to be a strong team despite the side being in 9th place with 11 points.
"Naitasiri has a lot of chances of survival because they fought for one point against Lautoka."
"Playing with 10 men, they nearly outnumbered a champion’s team like Lautoka."
"Lautoka had so many chances and they should have decided the game but Naitasiri contested really strongly."
"We have to praise Naitasiri for a really good fight back till the final minutes of the game."
"The speed of the game was high and Naitasiri showed really good details in the match."
"They were everywhere on the field making their way when they got 2-1 so I think Naitasiri proved to be strong over Lautoka."
"They are a really good team and I think they just need to improve their finishing and defending and will be good in their remaining games," he added.
Tailevu Naitasiri will face Dai Ichi Ba at 1 pm at Lautoka’s Churchill Park on Sunday.
