Suva, the defending champion of the 2022 Digicel Fiji FACT, is not taking any teams lightly heading into the tournament proper which resumes at Sigatoka’s Lawaqa Park today.

The Capital City side edged Ba 1-nil through a Simione Nabenu goal in the first round last Sunday.

Coach Babz Khan said they would be cautious.

“We will not underestimate any team in our pool as we have tough matches against Tailevu-Naitasiri, Nasinu, and hosts Nadroga,” Khan said.

“We will have to work hard to be in the semi-finals,” he added.

Suva plays Nasinu in round two of the tournament at 3pm today. Fixtures today: 1pm: Rewa-Navua, 3pm: Suva-Nadroga, 5pm: Nadroga- T/Naitasiri, 7pm: Nadi-Lautoka.
