As they prepare for the upcoming match against the capital city side this weekend, the head coach is putting in every effort to address this issue.

“We are looking forward to Suva. They are a good side and has a good set of players as well as national reps. We will come up with a plan to counter Suva in areas they lack but it will all depend on our boys.”

Mannu believes that the performance of the players on match day will ultimately determine the outcome.

He expresses hope that his players will be able to meet the required expectations on Sunday.
