Zahid ready to face former team in FACT semis

Rewa marksman Abbu Zahid is ready to face his former team in the second semifinal of the 2023 Digicel Fiji FACT at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva on Saturday.

The Delta Tigers face Ba in this much- anticipated showdown.

“We will just follow the game plan set up by the coach.”

“I have played in Ba before and the boys there know me and my game well.”

“They will try to keep a strong eye on me in the match but I’ll just focus on our team and the game plan we want to execute.”

“Ba is a good team and I know they will come firing but my priority right now is to win the Fiji FACT with Rewa.”

The 32-year-old police officer is also in the golden boot race after scoring two goals in their 1-0 win against Labasa on Day 1 and his second in their 1-1 draw against Nadi on Sunday.

“It’s always teamwork and the boys in the midfield create space and give me the ball so that I can score.”

“I want to win the golden boot award for my team but it won’t be easy. Our opponents have a tough defence and defending them will be a challenge but I’m ready to face the odds.”

“I’m just going to continue to improve my speed and my shots at the goal. Sometimes my shot is good but it crosses over the bar which I am determined to avoid against Ba.”

Glamada Investments Rewa will face RC Manubhai Ba at 4.30pm on Saturday.
