The Joseph Nand coachedNadi foot­ball side travel to Lawaqa Park, Si­ga­toka to face win­less Nadroga in the Voda­fone Pre­mier League (VPL) clash to­mor­row. The de­fend­ing VPL cham­pi­ons des­per­ately need a win to put their cam­paign on track. Nadi coach Joseph Nand said yes­ter­day they have been fac­ing prob­lems on play­ers fit­ness and avail­abil­ity. “We are con­ced­ing early goals which have been a ma­jor prob­lem for the side,” Nand said. “Fit­ness is a prob­lem as dur­ing train­ing play­ers are fail­ing to turn up.” Nand said he is con­fi­dent of a win over the Stal­lions. “We have to move for­ward and we need to bounce back.”

In­ter­est­ingly, Nadi have been switch­ing their play­ers’ po­si­tion around, which is not work­ing at the mo­ment. “We have a ro­ta­tional sys­tem in the side and if it does not work out we can al­ways move them back. “We need Ru­si­ate (Mater­erega) badly but he will only be avail­able for the Pa­cific Cup.” On Sun­day, Nadi travel to Govind Park to face points’ ta­ble leader Ba at 3pm.
