Lions hungry for a win against Ba

Bottom placed Babasiga Lions are determined for a win over Ba in their Digicel Premier League clash on Sunday.
 
After consecutive losses and draws, Head Coach Ravneel Pratap said players need to pull up their socks and train harder for their clash against arch rivals Ba.
 
"Ba is a good team and we know they will come really prepared so we also have to be ready to counter them."
 
"We have spoken to the boys during the last two weeks of training that they need to start pulling up their socks."
 
"Enough of the losses now, we really have to get a win and move on top. There are still chances for us to get back in the top five."
 
"Ba will definitely come firing but we just need to lift our performance and focus on the areas we are not good at."
 
Pratap added the side had been lacking in their defense in finishing which they have to be strong at before meeting the Men-In-Black this week.
 
“Well we are late at reacting to things and that's why we lack our fine moves."
 
"The last game, we had a draw and from that we learnt a lot of things. We didn’t have the right defending and finishing on time."
 
"We defended but it was late and that's something we have to consider against Ba. We have to be quick and also play smart and avoid making errors."
 
"What happened was history and our focus is just on Ba. We were given enough weeks of training and the players are back in their usual form so we hope to change things around this week."
 
The NZ Fan base Labasa will face Ba at 4pm at Nadi's Prince Charles Park on Sunday.
