In-form Nadi to face Lions test

In-form Nadi will take on Labasa in the feature Round 17 Digicel Premier League fixture this Saturday at Subrail Park in Labasa.
 
The Jetsetters are unbeaten in their last ten outings and Coach Viliame Toma is confident they will keep improving.
 
The former national defender said he has a good mix of young and experienced players and the three Solomon Islanders in the team- William Komasi, Barrie Limoki and Jaygray Sipakana have added the much-needed boost.
 
"We are improving game by game and it is good to see the newly signed players like Siotame Kubu blending very well with the rest of the boys," said Toma.
 
"Our brothers from the Solomon Islands are also well adjusted to the team now and their contribution has been immense."
 
"And then we have our young boys like Nikesh Singh, Eneriko Matau and Mohammed Ayman who are giving their best and proving their worth in the Nadi jumper."
 
"Labasa will be very tough as we will be playing them in an away fixture and know what to expect."
 
Toma added that they will stick to almost the same game plan but will look to make little adjustments to ensure there is a smooth transition of play and good discipline is maintained on the field.
 
The NZ Fanclub Labasa vs All in One Builders/KK's Hardware Nadi clash kicks off at 1.30pm.
 
In other matches this weekend, Ba will face Tailevu Naitaisiri at 1 pm on Sunday at Churchill Park while Lautoka will battle against bottom-placed Nasinu at the same venue at 3 pm and Suva will take on Navua around the same time at the HFC Bank Stadium.
