Lautoka Not Taking Tailevu Naitasiri Lightly

The Anginesh Prasad coached Lautoka side will not leave any stones unturned when they host Tailevu Naitasiri in the Digicel Premier League round eight fixtures at the Churchill Park in Lautoka on Sunday.

Lautoka FA official Muni Rajan said majority of their players have been part of the recent 93rd TIV Sangam Inter-District Championship.

On that list are defender Zibraaz Shahib, Samuel Gavo, James Pillay, and Muni Shivam Reddy who were part of the Lautoka TIV side that retained the title.

Nippy Edward Justin had featured for Rifle Range TIV.

“We hope to have full-strength team training as Tailevu Naitasiri cannot be underestimated,” Rajan said.

“It is back to preparation as we are looking forward to a tough match. After the World Cup playoff, the boys only played against Nasinu,” he said.

“After the Easter break, we are back for more action. We urge the fans to come out in numbers to support the team in their home game.”

The Blues are in ninth spot with six points after two wins and a loss.

Meanwhile, at the same venue the Imdad Ali coached Ba side will face Nasinu at 1pm. Ali is not new to the role as he was with the side back in 2016.

Ba FA confirmed that Ali will be assisted by schoolteacher Daniel Krishneel and Kiniviliame Naika who are both former reps as well.

Ali had led Lautoka to win their 6th Digicel Premier League title last season.

Ba is number three on the points table with 12 points after registering four wins and three losses.
