Defending national league champions, Suva football are touching up on a lot of areas ahead of the Digicel Premier League clash on Sunday.
The team is picking up preparations ensuring players are match-ready when they take on a confident Ba outfit.
The ‘Whites’ are trying to improve their form after a dormant six months of sports.
Coach Babs Khan says the two test matches against Navua over the weekend have exposed areas of weakness.
“The body is too relaxed, not in form. The pace of the game is a bit too slow and I don’t know what you can call it, but it’s just a shock for their system.”
Khan says there are also some injury worries but all should be good in the next few days.
“We have Laisenia Raura who is injured. There is a couple more who are injured, Mohammed Ramzam. We had Merrill Nand who came off the field. The medical staff is working on them and hopefully, they give me a report this afternoon and we’ll see what it is.”
Suva is currently sixth on the DPL points table hoping to move up with a win over Ba when they meet at the ANZ Stadium.
Other matches sees Navua host Nadroga at the Uprising Resort Ground at 4.30pm while Rewa and Nadi battles at Prince Charles Park.
The Suva/Ba and Rewa/Nadi matches will kick-off at 3pm.
