We are on right track, says Pratap

Labasa Coach Ravneel Pratap believes the side is on the right track in the Digicel Premier League after beating Nasinu 2-1 in Round 10 on Saturday.
Pratap said the key to their come-from-behind win was weakening the Nasinu defence by applying pressure from the midfield. 
"Playing Nasinu has never been easy but I thank the players and the Almighty Lord for the game today."
"I think after Nasinu scored the first goal the players woke up and we gave our best to match them up."
"We had the game plan but I guess we were late in executing them nonetheless the boys were not late in getting the win."  
"Yes, Nasinu played formidable football but we got our wake-up call through their goal and that really motivated the boys to respond."
"We did respond and the message to the boys was to keep pushing hard, go forward and combine well from the midfield."
"I think Nasinu tried to defend but we did not lose hope and ensured that we went on to test them."
He added that Rewa will be their next task this week but the side will need to strengthen their midfield.
"Our focus has shifted to the next match against Rewa. We are expecting a tough task from them."
"But I guess the win against Nasinu has motivated the players and we are hunting for more wins."
"Right now our focus will be on all aspects of the game but largely on our midfield."
"Our midfield was weak today but we kept pushing through but we can’t have any room for weakness against Rewa," he added.
NZ Fan Club Labasa will face Glamada Rewa at 3.30pm at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on Sunday.
