Sivoki is suspended after copping red card in the Courts Inter-District Championship final against Nadi last year.

Dreloa has to appear before the Fiji Football Association disciplinary committee after he was dropped from the Vodafone Fiji under-20 squad for failing to turn up for camp over the weekend.

Suva coach Gurjit Singh said while they would miss the services of the trio, there were options in the squad that he would be relying on.

He said fitness would be their biggest downfall in the opening leg of the series.

"The team has been training for a week now after coming back from the festive break," Singh said.

"There was no special program given to the players to follow during the break so fitness is our major concern.

"It's too late for intense physical training now because it would bring fatigue in the players."

Singh said he was working on the team combination and strategies to counter the Men in Black this weekend.

"The CVC series is important for both teams. We haven't won it yet so we will go out there with the aim to win the title.

"We know Ba will be tough but we will work on our game plan and try our best to win the opening leg."

The Suva versus Ba match will kick off at 3pm.

Ba will host Suva in the second leg at Govind Park on January 25.
