Nadi to miss midfielder in Oceania battle

Maciu Malo
Saturday, April 05, 2014

VODAFONE Shop and Save Nadi will miss the services of star midfielder Munit Krishna in their first O'League clash against Auckland City in Lautoka next week.

Krishna injured his knee during training and his chances of playing in the O'League look slim.

Team president Navneeda Goundar said it was unfortunate to lose Krishna but he has faith in other players filling the void.

He said the team would not be affected by Krishna's absence.

"The boys have prepared well for the tournament and we are hopeful of a good game against Auckland City."

The Jetsetters have also been boosted with the return of prolific striker and Australia-based Uraia Loki.

Goundar said Loki had combined well with the rest of the boys at training and he would be one of the players to watch out for during the tournament.

"Loki has been impressive at training and is expected to form a formidable combination with other strikers such as Napolioni Qasevakatini, Rusiate Mateirerega, Samuela Drudru and Jone Salauneune."

The match between Nadi and Auckland kicks off on Tuesday at 4pm.
