Ozzy to miss return match

BA'S Osea Vakatalesau will miss the second match of the Pillay Garments Champion versus Champion series against Nadi at Govind Park this Sunday.

Vakatalesau was sent off in the 1-all draw at Prince Charles Park last Saturday after picking up his second yellow card.

The striker who came on as a substitute for debutant Paula Buke was shown the yellow card by referee Dina Mani in the 30th minute for a crude challenge on a Nadi defender.

He was flashed the second yellow card and given the marching orders for a deliberate hand ball inside the Nadi box after half time.

Laisania Naioko who started for Ba in defence is nursing a knee injury.

Ba coach Yogendra Dutt said the late equaliser against Nadi had boosted the morale of the team.

Dutt said it would be a do or die affair this Sunday.

Ba, the defending champions, have won the title on 17 occasions while Nadi is yet to taste victory in the competition.

The match will kick off at 3pm.
