Prasad Has Faith In Blues To End 20 -Year Drought

Baker’s Fresh Biscuit Crackers Lautoka intends to end its 20-year drought at the 2022 Digicel Fiji FACT at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.

Lautoka last won the Fiji FACT in 2002 where they beat Nasinu, 3-2, at Churchill Park, Lautoka.

They will face defending cham­pions Ram’s Cleaning Services/ All Freight Logistics Suva in the second semi-final this Saturday at 5pm.

 

The Anginesh Prasad coached side are runners up from group A after beating All in One Build­ers Nadi FC 2-1, winning against 4R Electrical Labasa FC 2-1, and defeating Glamada Investment Rewa FC 1-0 but they lost 1-2 against Navua.

Prasad said the loss against Na­vua would not diminish the mo­rale of the team.

“The boys knew our plan to give some game time to our youth players and they were happy with it and the result against Navua will not hinder us in the semi-final against Suva,” Prasad told Fiji FA media.

 

‘We will go back and plan our recovery session before we start working on our game plan to counter Suva,”

‘Suva is a good side with some experienced players and they are unbeaten this season but we will do our best to beat them and win the title this year.

“I have faith in my players and they will do the job.

 

“We played four hard 90 min­utes of football which was not easy but takes a lot of toll on the players so we will go access the injuries of our plans and recover and work on our mistakes before coming into the final on Satur­day.

“It’s going to be physical foot­ball so we work out our plan to counter them out.”

He is urging Lautoka fans to come out in numbers to support the team at Lawaqa Park in Siga­toka on Saturday.
