We need to maintain our form: Prasad

Suva claimed another impressive 4-1 victory over Navua to register their second six points in the competition.
The Gurjit Singh coached side looks on track to book a semifinal berth and needs only a draw in their next game against Nadi to qualify.
“The boys have been impressive in the wins over Lautoka and now Navua today,” Prasad said.
“I believe we stand a good chance to win the Fiji FACT title but it is important that the players deliver a similar performance. We have been strong in both games and the players will need to take the same approach in the remaining matches,” he said.
Suva skipper Ravinesh Singh was on top form against Navua as he claimed a hat trick. Suva led 2-0 at the break following goals from Singh and fromer Navua rep Inia Boko.
Navua put up a strong challenge in the second half and Marika Waqanibau bought a sigh of inspiration for his side on the 72nd minute.
But Suva regrouped and Singh added two more goals to his tally to end Navua’s fight.
Navua coach Saiyad Ali says the loss of several key players to other districts have come at the cost to the side.
“We have lost a number of key players this season and I believe this has gone on to affect Navua’s campaign. I took over the team just a week ago and believe that we need time at least by the end of the season we would be ready to compete with the top sides,” Ali said.
“Right now looking at our fitness level, I can say that we are not fit enough to participate in the Fiji FACT. A lot of work needs to be done and we need to take a positive approach.”
Suva faces Nadi 3.30pm tomorrow afternoon at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori while Navua battle Lautoka 11.30am.
