Blues in high spirits

LAUTOKA coach Dennis Singh has assured the Blues fans that the team will not be demoted to the premier division this year.

The Sugar City side notched its first win in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League against Navua at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on Sunday.

Midfielder Alvin Avinesh proved to be the hero for the Design Engineering-sponsored team scoring both goals in the 2-nil win.

The win pushed Lautoka to sixth position on the points table ahead of Navua and Nadroga on goal differential. Singh said the new transfer window had brought a sigh of relief.

"Experience is what was lacking in the team," he said.

"This is the first win and it will not be the last. We will try to climb up the ladder from now."

Singh said the win against Navua was a morale booster.

"There is a change in the attitude of the players. They were serious against Navua.

"However, there are still areas of concern that we need to work on. One of that is the fitness of some players.

"The likes of Salesh Samy, Malakai Waqa and Semesa Nakosia have been away from the game for some time."

Only two super premier matches will be played this Sunday.

At Ratu Cakobau Park, Navua will host Labasa while Nadroga will play Rewa at Lawaqa Park.

Both matches will kick off at 3pm.
