Axe falls on Lino

CAPTAIN Iliesa Lino has been dropped from the Navua squad for Sunday's vital Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League clash against Labasa.

Lino, who played as sweeper in the 2-0 loss to Lautoka last week, was axed from the team after a board meeting.

Navua interim coach Manoj Kumar said some players failed to perform against the Blues.

"Lino is out of the showdown at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori," Kumar said

"There are question marks over Pranil Kumar and Serevasio Doli. I need to have a chat with these two players for their half-hearted and sub-standard performance against Lautoka before deciding whether they will make the cut this weekend.

"Lino is definitely out for reasons best known to us and something that was discussed at our board meeting."

Left back Sikeli Naula will miss the match because of suspension.

"We are a little flimsy when it comes to depth on the bench but this gives us the chance to use our younger players," he said.

"We have recalled former reps like Siga Ali and Rohit Chand. Iliavi Katonibau, who has warmed the bench in the last three games, will also get a run."

Navua is going through a rough patch with several top players seeking a move away from the district.

The Reds are on three points together with Lautoka and Nadroga at the bottom of the points table.
