Tailevu Naitasiri coach Tagi Vonolagi says they are facing a lot of problems with the ground during their training but that has not deterred them in their preparation for the Digicel Fiji FACT which is starting tomorrow.

Vonolagi says preparation has not been good for the team because of ground availability and conditions not being playable due to bad weather.

He says the team has been working on their fitness as this will carry them through.

The coach says Carlos Liomasia who played for the Solomon Islands national team has brought in some strength and they expect him to do good in his first tournament.

Vonolagi adds they lost against Nadi, Rewa and Labasa in the Digicel Premier League this season but they hope to turn the negative results to positive results.

Tailevu Naitasiri takes on Nadi at 1.30pm tomorrow in the opening match of the tournament at the HFC Bank Stadium.

The group matches will be played from tomorrow to Sunday while the semi finals and final will be played next weekend.
