Blues eight seek release

THE number of players seeking their release from the Lautoka Football Association has increased to eight.

Last week, fullback Noa Vukica, defender Pranil Naidu and midfielder Dave Radrigai applied for their transfer certificates.

Mitieli Namuka, Jone Kaloutani, Gerrad Voi, Mohammed Tasleem and Ravinesh Dass have followed suit applying for their releases this week.

They are eyeing a move to Nadroga.

Lautoka, which is without a point in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League, will play Navua at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on Sunday.

Blues coach Dennis Singh said he was not bothered about players wanting to leave the district.

Singh said there were no disruptions to their training sessions.

"We will stick to the players who have the heart to play for Lautoka," he said.

"It is all about the pride of wearing the Blue jersey. Some players were dropped after the loss to Ba. They will have to prove themselves to get back in the squad.

"We desperately need a win against Navua. The morale of the players is high with the inclusion of Eran Underwood, Zibraaz Sahib and Poasa Bainivalu."

Dropped from the squad are Epeli Kosa and Seremaia Nadusitu.

Veterans Abinesh Salesh Samy and Maika Waqa have been training with the Blues and could force their way into the team against Navua having already secured their releases from their previous districts.

The match will kick off at 1pm.
