THE Lautoka Football Association council raised concerns with the unimpressive performance of the Blues team in the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National Football League following their two home losses.
During the LFA council meeting at Churchill Park on Wednesday, the club delegates sought answers from the executives of their chances of making the top eight before the cut off time in April for the Fiji FACT.
It was also revealed that a few senior players had opted to keep away from training because of the hard line approach drawn by the interim coaches for training.
Senior players Noa Vukica and Dave Radrigai were sent packing from training this week after failing to arrive on time.
Former players Sam Work, Jeremaia Ladawa, Wally Mausio and Upendran Choy were appointed as interim coaches for the Blues team before the start of the NFL this month.
Sekove Bai, Freddy Work, David John Mannix and Ronnel Sharma were roped to help the interim coaches.
Former Labasa rep and Nadi coach Johnny Williams also volunteered his services.
In the opening match the Blues recorded a 6-0 hiding from defending champions Ba at Churchill Park. In the second match the Blues beat Savusavu 2-0 at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka. In the third encounter Lautoka went down 0-2 to Labasa at home.
The delegates during the council meeting consented to give the interim coaches two more games before making a final decision on the coaching position.
LFA president Shalendra Prasad said the main concern was making the top eight.
He said they had already lost two games which was a drawback.
Prasad said further losses could prove disaster for the team.
"Many people are saying to develop the Lautoka team but we cannot do that with the cut off date for the Super Eight just a few months ahead," Prasad said.
"I don't believe that any of the Blues fans or officials would like to see the team go down to the premier division. The team needs to start performing."
Lautoka will take on Nadroga in the NFL at Lawaqa Park this Sunday.
The Sugar City side is likely to miss striker Valerio Nawatu who has returned to Navua citing family commitments while goalkeeper Jone Sorolo has not attended training.
Simon Satya Prakash will miss the match after picking up two yellow cards.
