National team striker Napolioni Qasevakatini is expected to add further firepower to an already potent attack as the All in One Builders (NZ) Nadi prepare to take on Suva in the Punjas Battle of the Giants semifinal this Saturday.

Qasevakatini was injured in the first game against Navua and did not feature in Nadi’s other two matches.

However Coach Kamal Swamy has confirmed the former Lautoka Central College student is coping well and will feature against Suva.

This will further boost the Nadi side who have scored 8 goals in the tournament so far which is the most by any team.

Qasevakatini scored the winning goal for the Suva side in the 2014 IDC final which was their last tournament win.

Swamy also says that a few of their experienced players are nursing injuries and they are closely monitoring them.

Nadi take on Suva in the second semifinal of the BOG at 4pm this Saturday while Rewa play Ba at 2pm.

The final is at 2.30pm Sunday.
