Lautoka Football Association official Muni Rajan said majority of their players were played during the 93rd TIV Sangam Interdistrict Championship during the Easter weekend.

The players Zibraaz Shahib, Samuel Gavo, James Pillay, and Muni Shivam Reddy were part of the Lautoka TIV side that retained the title while nippy Edward Justin featured for Rifle Range TIV.

“We will have a full-strength team and we are set to play as the boys were back training,” Rajan said.

“It is back to preparation and we are looking forward to a tough match. After the World Cup playoffs, the boys only played against Nasinu. After the Easter break, we will be back for more action.

We urge our fans to come out in numbers to support the team in their home game.”
The Blues are in ninth spot with six points from two wins and a loss.
