Replacement Samuela Nabenia connected well with a Tevita Warainavalu corner-kick to score the second goal.
Rewa coach Rodick Singh said the players performed well.
“We could see the players had a positive mindset in the game and that is the reason why we won today (Sunday),” said Singh
Singh said there were a lot of areas to work on despite the win.
“There are a lot of areas to improve and we will go back to the drawing board. Our area of concern is our finishing. We can see we play good football and we do create chances but we failed to utilise,” said former Rewa rep
Navua coach Amit Prakash said the players lost concentration in the game.
“We lost concentration and the players will need to step up if they want to stay in the premier division. “said Prakash
“We started well and then we lost focus. I am really concerned at the moment as we are danger zone but we will work out something as it’s not over yet but let’s see how things go, “said Prakash.
The side remains at the bottom of the points standings with five points from 10 games.
Navua will play Labasa this Sunday at 1 pm at Subrail Park in Labasa while Rewa stays on a bye.
