Fiji close in on knockout rounds
Fiji can seal a quarter final berth with one more victory in Botswana.
The Baby Pearls have beaten Trinidad and Tobago and Wales in their opening two matches and will join England at the top of Pool D with a win over Granada.
Head coach Vicki Wilson said they've got some momentum is building in their quest for a quarter final berth in Botswana
"What's pleasing me the most is for young kids out of Fiji, that have had very little experience, nothing is fazing them at the moment so it demonstrates terrific growth for me so I was really pleased with that," she said.
"We just had a team meeting and the thing about Granada is they play very similar to Trinidad - it's the Caribbean style - so just trying to make sure the girls aren't too relaxed and aren't on 'island time' going into the game.
"We've had a great day off but just trying to get our minds back on the job for tomorrow and if we can get that strong start again that will be really important for us because they seem to just thrive on that.
"I don't want to be in chase mood at all going into the last quarter, that's for sure."
