Injured Drudru to miss Lautoka match

NADI will miss the services of star striker Samuela Drudru for the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League fixture against Lautoka this Sunday.

Drudru has not recovered from an ankle injury he suffered at the Oceania Football Confederations Champions League clash against Auckland City last month.

The Jetsetters have put behind the disappointments at the Champions League and are focussing on the task ahead.

A positive result in the match will propel Nadi to the second spot in the competition behind leader Suva.

Team manager Krishna Sami said they were treating the match seriously.

Sami said Drudru should be fit in a couple of weeks.

"This is a very important game for us," he said.

"We have put the Champions League group stage behind us. Certainly it was a learning experience for the players as most of them are young.

"To book the spot in next year's competition we have to target the National Football League top two spots. Lautoka will be no pushover having recruited players in the last transfer window.

"We are calling on the fans to turn up in numbers to support the boys."

Nadi has four wins and a loss in the competition. The side lost to Suva 1-0.

Marking their return for Lautoka will be Poasa Bainivalu, Iliesa Lino, Semesa Nakosia and Eran Underwood.

The Blues desperately need a win in the fixture to move up the points table.

The side has only one win from six matches.
