Rewa ready to face Suva

The Delta Tigers are ready to take on Suva in their opening match of the Digicel Premier League tomorrow.

Former Rewa rep and newly appointed coach Rodicks Singh says they need to avoid silly mistakes since they have experienced playing Suva.

“We have to be smart because we can’t be making silly mistakes that give Suva opportunities against us. We have played them in the last league and came to a nil-all draw match and considering that we have re-looked at our style of football and this time we want to beat them.”

Singh said the side will have to put on a strong defence and disallow the capital city to enter their territory.

“They will want to score but we will keep a good defence so that they don’t come to our side and try to score. The team is ready as we have been training for a while now and have ironed the weak ends.”

“Our wake-up call came after we played the friendly match. It’s a new beginning and the journey will be difficult because we will play each team twice but we will take each game at a time. We will not rush things through but keep good ball possessions at our feet.”

The side will feature experienced players like Tevita Waranivalu, brothers Bruce and Setareki Hughes, Anish Khem, inclusions – Patrick Joseph, Madhvan Goundar and the goalkeeping area will be controlled by Simione Tamanisau.

Rewa vs Suva match kicks off at 3pm at the ANZ Stadium tomorrow.
