Tailevu Naitasiri without key players

FORMER national football rep Tagi Vonolagi will field a youthful Tailevu Naitasiri side against Rakiraki on Sunday.

While he is concerned that most of his senior players are moving to other districts, Vonolagi said it would be an opportunity for his young players to prove themselves at district level in the premier division.

Tailevu Naitasiri plays Rakiraki at the FSC grounds in Rakiraki in round two of the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League.

Vonolagi said his young troops played according to expectations during their 4-0 victory over Lami in the opening round.

"I will be missing most of my key players who are usually in the starting team this week," he said.

"Right now I only have the youth players who I will rely on again to take us through against Rakiraki this Sunday."

The former national stopper said he had lost several key players to districts such as Suva and Rewa.

"It's a bit disappointing to lose your top players during the window especially when the league is still on. As a coach I am satisfied that the players I develop have progressed through but that will not stop me from grooming future players."

In other premier matches, Nasinu plays Vatukoula at 1pm and Lami takes on Tavua at 3pm at Saraswati grounds in Manoca in Nausori.
