Suva ready to go all out against Labasa in Fiji FACT

Suva will face Labasa in FIji FACT semifinals – Fiji FA Media

After finishing second in the group stage, Suva’s next challenge in 2020 Fiji FACT will be against tournament hosts Labasa this Saturday. The Capital City Boys had an extra week to get ready for this important match.

This clash was scheduled for last Saturday, but it was postponed by Fiji Football Association due to Subrail Park’s pitch conditions. It was a good thing for Suva, as Beniaminio Mateinaqara and Christopher Wasasala – two players who would not have played if the match had been contested last week – must be available for this game.

On the other hand, it was reported by Suva’s president Ritesh Pratap that Kelvin Naidu and Simione Nabenu are expected to lose this clash due to major injuries. Besides the injuries, Pratap is also worried with pitch conditions: “I think the players did not show their full potential in the group stage because of the ground condition. Hopefully, the weather holds, and the ground condition improves so that the players can show their real capabilities and fans can enjoy a good level of football on Saturday,” he revealed.

The bad news is that more rain is expected to come this weekend, what could force another postponement in Fiji FACT semifinals. However, it was reported by Fiji FA that they have a ‘Plan B’ if this happens. The clash between Suva and Labasa is scheduled to kick-off at 1pm (local time).
