Priceline Pharmacy Ba manager Ranvir Singh said the loss to Suva during their final pool match of the 2020 Punjas Battle of the Giants had been a stern wake-up call.

“We won 7-3 against Nasinu and held Labasa 1-1 but our defeat against Suva is a wake-up call, “Singh said.

“We wanted to qualify for the semi-finals with an unbeaten record but the loss to Suva has somewhat affected our aim.

“But at the same time the loss comes as a wake-up call and we have to pull up our socks and prepare better.”

The 18-time Battle of the Giants champion have put last week’s results behind them as they now prepare for the final stages.

“We hope to get things organised during the week and our coach will be preparing a game plan for the semi-final match.

“We know Ba has won the BOG the most number of times and while we will be aiming to win our 19 BOG title, we will not put ourselves under pressure and will just play according to our game plan.”
