THE Design Engineering-sponsored Lautoka team is keen to regain the Late Jimmy Ram Pratap Trophy from holders Nadi.

The neighbouring districts will clash in the second match of the series at Churchill Park on Sunday.

The first match ended in a one all draw at Prince Charles Park on Wednesday.

Former Lautoka and Fiji rep Bakalevu Mocemereke has been helping in the Blues' preparations in the absence of coach Ravinesh Kumar who was busy with the Fiji under-20 side's commitments this week.

Lautoka Football Association president Shalendra Prasad said the Late Jimmy Ram Pratap Trophy series was an ideal build-up for the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League which starts next month.

Prasad said they would be testing some new boys.

Entry for the match will be $3. There will be no entry fee for children under the age of 12 years. The fixture will kick off at 3pm.
