Navua’s fate will be decided in final match – FBC News


The Navua Football team managed to avoid relegation from the Digicel Premier League today after holding Nadi to a draw.

If the team had lost, they would have been demoted to the senior division starting next year.

Indeed, Navua currently sits at the bottom of the table with 6 points while Nadroga, who is ranked 7th, has 9 points even after losing 3 to zero against Lautoka today.

Nadi started the game well as they dominated most of the game.

This led the hosts to strike first by Sakaraia Naisua after a magnificent low cross into the box.

The visitors returned to the game a few minutes later after a penalty kick following a foul.

Navua captain Vineet Chand stepped in and scored the crucial goal.

In the second half, the visitors were excited as they controlled the growing pressure of the game on Nadi.

A wave of attacks came from Navua, but the team just couldn’t find the back of the net, mainly due to a poor finish.

The team was even reduced to 10 men as Mosese Balenaga was given a second yellow for a foul play.

But that didn’t cool their spirits as they continued to pressure the Jet Set team in search of that vital goal that would give them 3 points.

However, it wasn’t meant to be like time was catching up to them.

Navua will face Nadroga next weekend in the final round of the DPL, which will also determine which team stays and which team leaves.

Navua will have to win by two clear goals while Nadroga just needs a draw at Lawaqa Park.
