“Our first game was a draw but still it’s our first game of the year. Playing against a good game against Nadroga and getting a draw is something positive and now we are taking those positive in our next game against Suva”

He adds that the senior players in the team have been playing a pivotal role in the squad as they have been guiding and moulding the youths.

He says this was evident in their match at Lawaqa Park last Sunday.

The Babasiga Lions are on track with their training as they prepare to face Suva in the next round.

Pratap adds that they won’t be underestimating the capital city side but are gearing up for a good match.
