Awin over Tailevu/ Naitasiri on Sun­day is cru­cial for Navua if they are to im­prove their stand­ing on the Voda­fone Se­nior League (South­ern Zone) points ta­ble. Navua foot­ball coach Mo­hammed Shafil said they are sit­ting on five points and a win over Tailevu/ Naitasiri is going to push them to the top. “We know that Tailevu/Naitasiri have good play­ers but we need to look past that and play to our best this weekend,” Shafil said. “We will not take any team lightly at this stage be­cause we know how cru­cial this win is for us to move up on the ta­ble.” Navua drew two-all in their last game against Nas­inu and Shafil says, al­though they came out with a draw, they were un­happy with the re­sult. “The rea­son is be­cause we know we could have won that game, we had a lot of chances at goal and had more ball pos­ses­sion. “But our at­tempts at goal were not good and that let us down in the end. We had the lead but we couldn’t keep it. “I think our shoot­ing is what we need to work on be­fore we take on Tailevu/ Naitasiri. Re­gard­less, the play­ers and the team are do­ing well and our per­for­mance against Nas­inu was our best so far so we hope to im­prove on that this weekend.”
