LAUTOKA'S misery run in the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National Football League continues after they were held scoreless by a gritty Nadroga outfit at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka yesterday.
The Blues, with strikers Valerio Nawatu and Nigerian Kenneth Onyema, failed to breach the Nadroga defence.
The draw result against the minnows wasn't expected by many Lautoka fans with the pressure now on the interim coaches to get the side back to winning ways against Suva this week.
Lautoka Football Association president Shalendra Prasad said the council members, during a meeting last week, had given the mandate for the interim coaches to guide the team for two more matches before their fate would be decided.
He said they needed to win matches in order to cement their top eight spot for the next season.
Nadroga coach Waisea Tale Senior said his boys played according to their game plan, whichc was tightening their defence to shut out the strikers.
Former Nadroga Football Association president and die-hard Stallions fan Robert Bali said Nadroga had a bright future with the youngsters.
He said the boys made the Lautoka players run all over the field.
"The boys really picked up after the loss against Labasa last week," Bali said.
"The mistakes they made were corrected during training. Holding an experienced Lautoka team is a bonus for us. We want the fans to come out in numbers to support the team not during the game but at training as well."
