Injured Bolaitoga in doubt

LABASA midfielder Pita Bolaitoga is in doubt for the match against Lautoka today because of injury.

The Babasiga Lions travelled to the Sugar City yesterday for their third match in the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National Football League competition.

Labasa coach Bal Sanju Reddy said they were hoping Bolaitoga would recover in time for them to name their final match squad.

"The only injury concern in the team is Pita," he said.

"We are hoping to do a medical to confirm if he will be able to play but we will wait till the time comes for us to fill out the match squad sheet."

Bolaitoga was the stand-in coach before Reddy and scored a brace of goals in Labasa's 3-1 win over Nadroga last weekend.

Reddy said they were taking a cautious approach towards Lautoka who had lost both their games in the competition this season.

"They are a good team and will be looking to bounce back, especially when they are playing on their home-ground and in front of their home-fans.

"I am sure they would not want to disappoint their fans on their home ground after losing their first two matches, so we are expecting a really tough match."

He said the weather in the past few days had not been so favourable but he was optimistic his players would give their best performance at Churchill Park.

"We had training but the weather was not good, so we were not able to do as much as we wanted.

"I was just working on fitness because I saw that was what the players lacked in the first two matches.

"Once the weather is fine and the ground is hard, we can work on other aspects of the game."

The match kicks off at 3pm.
