Suva looks for goalkeeper to replace Tamanisau

THE Suva football side is racing against time to secure an experienced goalkeeper ahead of this weekend's clash against Navua.

The Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League point leaders will host Navua on Sunday at the ANZ Stadium at 3pm.

Suva coach Gurjit Singh said they were hoping to secure the services of Emori Ragata for this weekend's game.

Ulaiasi Tamanisau featured for the Whites in the 2-1 win over Labasa last Sunday.

"Ulaiasi was carrying injury when he played last weekend and doctors have advised him to take three weeks rest," Singh said.

"We are waiting for Emori and hoping that he will be in by tomorrow (today). He suffered a cut on his leg and we have to see how bad it is before deciding whether he can play or not."

Singh said they do not have any other experienced goalkeeper in the team to rely on.

But the good news for Suva fans is that tough defender Leone Damudamu has joined the team.

Singh said Damudamu joined the training earlier this week.

"The turnout at the trainings this week has been great. I guess the players are motivated after the win against Labasa."

Meanwhile Navua coach Mohammed Shafeel said the side had been working on its finishing.

Navua lost to Rewa 1-2 in the opening round at Ratu Cakobau Park last weekend.
