NI-Vanuatuan recruit Vatu Joel Duvu Eustace has joined the Lautoka side ahead of the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National Football League clash against Rewa on Sunday.
The bible student played his first game in the Blues colours against the Fiji under-20 team at Churchill Park yesterday.
Lautoka Football Association president Shalendra Prasad said the utility player was being tried out.
He said Eustace had been studying in the country for the past two years.
Prasad said the team had been training without a coach.
"We hope to announce the new coach shortly," Prasad said.
"The Nigerian players Ali Chigozie Anthoney and Asombe Hendry Uche are jelling with the rest of the local boys. Anthoney in particular was a bit hesitant in his first game against Tavua. He scored two goals but could have gotten more."
Lautoka held the upper hand against the Delta Tigers in the NFL last year. The Blues beat Rewa 1-0 and drew the other fixture 1-all.
The Lautoka versus Rewa fixture will be played at Churchill Park at 3pm.
Also on Sunday at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka, Navua will take on Suva at 1pm while Nadroga will face Tavua at 3pm.
