Duo back to help Lautoka soccer

FORMER Lautoka players Eran Underwood and Poasa Bainivalu have rejoined the Blues.

The duo, together with Labasa recruit Kavaia Rawaqa, have been training with the Sugar City side since Monday.

The transfers of these players from their previous districts are in process.

Lautoka coach Dennis Singh said it was good to get Eran and Poasa back who were their budding stars some years back.

Singh said they needed to strengthen their squad after succumbing to five straight losses in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League.

"We will have a formidable lineup for the next game," he said.

"The cancellation of the National Football League games this weekend will give us more time to prepare the team."

Lautoka was supposed to play Navua at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on Sunday.

Meanwhile midfielder Zibraaz Sahib should be eligible to represent the Blues in the next encounter after serving out his suspension for playing in a non Fiji Football Association sanctioned tournament last year.

Also back at training is rugged defender Semesa Nakosia.

Lautoka sits at the bottom of the National Football League points table.
