THE Islands Electric Lautoka Crushers will be out to maintain its unbeaten run in the Vodafone Cup Lautoka competition at Churchill Park today.

The Crushers will take on the Lautoka Rabbitohs in the fourth round of the competition.

The Crushers will field a youthful line-up with University of the South Pacific student Jone Ravu and Central College student Mesi Langi leading the charge.

Crushers team manager Mesake Navugona said they had introduced many young players this year.

Navugona said they wanted to finish the competition without a blemish.

"The boys have been training seriously," the former dual national rep said.

"The focus will be on defence. We will have to make the tackles quickly so that the opponents do not gain much territory before kicking.

"Next week we will take on the Vuda Jets which is a new team. So this is the chance for the youngsters to prove themselves to maintain their positions for next week."

In the top eight competition, the KBL Saru Dragons will face the Nabua Broncos.
