Labasa to ‘fly low’ | FijiFootball.com.fj

4R Electric Labasa FC coach Raveel Pratap says they will have to stay humble and not to fly high after beating Rewa 2-1 in the round one of the Digicel Fiji FACT at ANZ Stadium on Sunday.

“All credit goes to the boys, they worked hard till the last and that is how football is played,”

He praised the performance of striker Christopher Wasasala who scored both goals for the Babasiqa Lions.

“Chris played really well and did a lot of sacrifices which paid off. He left his family back here in Suva for two weeks to train with us and we could see the improved performance of him and the team,”

“He proved his critics wrong and showed what is he capable of and we always believed in him,”

Pratap said they had a huge task ahead and need to be humble.

“The win against Rewa is a morale booster but we need to be humble and not to fly and treat each match as a final.”

“Our next match is against Lautoka and we know they are a very strong side but we will go back to the drawing board and iron out our mistake before taking Lautoka on Friday,” said Pratap

“It was a tough match against Rewa and all the teams are equally good so we have to fly low and stay focused and work hard in the remaining matches,”

Labasa will be bye on Thursday when the tournament proper kicks off this Thursday at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka and faces Lautoka on Friday at 2 pm. They play Navua on Saturday at 2 pm and their final Group A match is against Nadi on Sunday at 8 pm.
