Nadroga stokes fire of optimism

The Nadroga football team is anticipating better results in the 2022 Digicel Premier League season after finishing last in the league last year.
 
Team president Mohammed Ali said they are fortunate to remain in the league but he is fully aware that tension will grow this year with 10 teams battling.
 
"2021 was a lesson for us not to make rational decisions."
 
"Our resolution is to play a better game this year and aim for better results. We want to secure wins although we know how tough league will be."
 
"We want to bring depth in our game and make changes in our playing style and pattern of the game."
 
"Yes, finishing has been a concern for us because we missed scoring crucial goals so this year we are trying to work on our finishing and aim for better goal difference in league."
 
Ali also said their aim is to secure a spot in the top five team of the league this year.
 
"We did not work according to our plans but we tried our best and the last match against Lautoka was very tough. We had to secure win but we didn’t and that was a lesson for us."
 
"We want to be in the top five teams list and for that I’m confident the players will give in their best."
 
"This year will be another tough year because our old rivals Tailevu Naitasiri will set their foot in and we know they can be strong team. We have played against them and we know they will surely make changes in their game style."
