Ba holds Labasa in DPL opener
March 6, 2021 3:43 pm
It is not easy to play Labasa on their home ground, says Ba Coach, Kamal Swamy.
Ba held Labasa to a nil-all draw in the opening match of the 2021 Digicel Premier League at Subrail Park in Labasa.
Swamy says it was a tough match and he applauded the boys for a good game considering Ba has a history of losing at Subrail Park.

He adds they will be working on bettering their weaknesses before they take on Nadi in their next game.
They will take on Nadi at the Fiji FA Academy Ground in Ba next weekend.
The Labasa Football side always expects a win when playing on its home ground says coach Ravneel Pratap.
Pratap says it was a tough game and the boys played well.
The Labasa side copped two yellow cards and one red card in the game.
The red card was issued to Sitiveni Rakai.

Pratap says copping the cards is all part of the game where players get carried away sometimes but they will be working on their discipline.
Labasa will take on Navua in their second match of the Premier League in Navua next weekend.
Both teams walked away with a point each in front of a jammed pack crowd in Labasa.
Several efforts from the Men in Black at goal proved futile as Labasa put up a strong defense to keep the visitors from scoring.
The DPL continues tomorrow with Lautoka hosting Navua at Churchill Park while Suva will battle Rewa at the ANZ Stadium and Nadroga meets Nadi at Lawaqa Park.
All matches will kick-off at 3pm.
