“Still looking at how on we are working together to improve our performance. We have to understand Lautoka is a very good side, probably the best side in the country with a lot of experienced players and equally good players on the bench, they can rotate players so you know it’s a big aks for the Ba side. Nonetheless, we will see how we can tackle that on Sunday.”

Ali also thanks supporters who turned up in numbers to back the team and is urging them to be back this week.

Meanwhile, striker, Darold Kakasi is expected to feature this weekend.

Ba needs to win with two clear goals while Lautoka needs a draw to take the CVC trophy.
