The Vodafone Premier League clash between Lautoka and JIL Dreketi at Subrail Park in Labasa was called off yesterday.

Fiji Football Association competition manager Amitesh Pal told SUNsports the match was called off because of the wet ground.

Referee Ashwin Raj made the decision after discussing with team officials.

“I supported the idea after Dreketi officials agreed with the referee’s call.”

JIL Dreketi coach Johan Leewai said they were looking forward to their first match of the season.

Vodafone national football head coach Christophe Gamel met and spoke with both coaches and also agreed with the decision.
