Singh looks for more players

LAUTOKA coach Dennis Singh is seriously considering recruiting players from other districts in a bid to avoid automatic demotion to the premier division.

The Blues are reeling at the bottom of the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League (NFL) together with Navua.

Both teams have no points after four matches.

Navua holds the wooden spoon status with a goal differential of minus six. Lautoka has a goal differential of minus five.

The two teams will not play in the NFL this weekend.

Singh who guided the Blues to the 2008 Inter District Championship victory said they do not have quality players in the squad.

He said inexperience was their major drawback.

"The inter administrator Sanjay Prasad tried to get the local league competition going but the idea was shelved by the club delegates," he said.

"We cannot scout for players when there is no local league competition. Alvin Avinesh is the only player in the squad who has won a major title. "
