After holding first-placed side Rewa to an 1-1 draw in the last weekend, the Men in Black will have another clash against a team in the top of the table of Vodafone Premier League: Suva. The team coached by Ronil Kumar will travel to the capital city to take on the good side of Suva, led by the in form striker Sairusi Nalaubu that scored a hattrick in the latest win of his side over Labasa.
For this match, the current national champions will be missing one of the most important players of the season so far the team: Sanaila Waqanicakau. The former Dreketi striker is being vital for Ba in the season, Waqanicakau scored a brace in a hard fought win of Ba against Labasa before the break for Battle of Giants tournament – win that started the recovery of Ba that is now ranked second in the most important football league of Fiji.
The tall striker will be certainly an important miss for Ronil Kumar in this match against Suva as Ba expects to a grab in order to overcome Rewa at the top of the table. While the tall striker will be unable to contribute to serve a suspension due yellow cards accumulation, Ba will hope to see Samuela Drudru back to his goalscoring days and the young Solomon Islander Darold Kakasi to continue in his good form for the team.
The match will be played on Sunday (06th Sep) at ANZ Stadium, Suva. The game is set to kick-off at 3pm FJT.
