Nadi hopeful of retaining the Fiji FACT - Ali

Nadi soccer defender Afraz Ali says they are hopeful the Jetsetters will successfully retain the Vodafone Fiji FACT title which kicks off tomorrow.

Nadi won the Fiji FACT last year when they beat Suva 2-1 in the final at Churchill Park.

Ali says they have been preparing for more than a month now and have been working to fix the mistakes which let them down this season.

He says all teams will provide stiff competition but adds Labasa will be the side to look out for as they will be playing in front of their home fans.

Nadi has been boosted by the return of star midfielder Avinesh Suwamy for the tournament but will miss the services of striker Napolioni Qasevakatini who has been ruled out through injury.

Nadi takes on Lautoka in their first match at 3.30pm at Churchill Park tomorrow while Ba takes on Nasinu at 1.30pm.

On Sunday, Suva takes on Navua at 1pm at the ANZ Stadium while Labasa takes on Rewa at 3pm.
