NADI striker Uraia Loki has followed the footsteps of Ba duo Jone Ralulu and Malakai Tiwa by joining the Yoogali Football Club in Australia.

The Yoogali Football Club which plays in the Griffith & District Amateur Football Association competition is coached by former Fiji captain Abraham Watkins.

His sons Archie Junior and Sitiveni also play for the team.

Loki represented the Jetsetters in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League against Navua last Saturday before flying out.

Nadi team manager Kamlesh Sami confirmed that Loki would not be available for the clash against Labasa this Saturday.

Sami said they would also miss the services of midfielder Munit Krishna who had been ruled out because of injury.

"This is a crucial match for us because Suva has opened up a big gap by winning all their games," he said.

"The team regrouped on Monday and all the other players turned up for training.

"The players are showing commitment which is a good sign. With Suva in top form, we cannot afford to drop any points.

"The aim is to qualify for the next Oceania Champions League," he said.

Nadi held the upper hand against the Babasiga Lions in the competition last year.

The Kamal Swamy coached team won both matches beating the Northerners 2-1 and 2-0 respectively.

The Nadi team will fly to Vanua Levu on Saturday morning.

The match is scheduled to kick off at Subrail Park at 3pm.
