Former Lautoka captain, Dave Radrigai, was the toast of the Suva side as he scored twice in their 2-1 win over Lautoka in the Digicel Premier League clash at the ANZ Stadium, Suva, yesterday.

Radrigai played a crucial role in Lautoka winning last year’s DPL title before moving to Suva, last month.

What happened: In the 27th minute Lautoka striker Sairusi Nalaubu drew first blood as they led 1-0.

Suva also had their moments with new signings Samuela Drudru and Anish Khem combining upfront but the Blues defence led by goalkeeper Beniamino Mateinaqara and Atonio Tuivuna kept them at bay.

Halftime; Suva 0-1 Lautoka.

Suva came out firing at the resumption of play and got the equaliser in the 46th minute from Radrigai’s header.
