The new inclusions including Ramzan Khan, Abhishek Prasad and Merrill Nand featured for the Whites.
Suva FA President Ritesh Pratap says looking at their performance yesterday, the players have the potential to help the side to another successful season.
“Well I think looking at these new players like Ramzan, Merrill and Abhishek, they are good and they will be a god asset to the team and they are fitting in well.”
Pratap adds they hope to have another friendly match against Navua this weekend to help them identity and work on areas they need to address before the first leg of the series.
