NAVUA ended their Vodafone Fiji FACT campaign without a win after narrowly going down to Lautoka 2-3 in the final group match at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori yesterday.

The southern minnows lost its earlier matches to Suva 1-4 and Nadi 0-1.

Lautoka scored the opening goal through Ratu Dugucagi in the 35th minute but the B Prasad and Sons-sponsored Navua equalised five minutes later through Sheik Moshin to head into the break 1-1.

Veteran Jone Vono Jr put the Sugar City side in the lead on the 63rd minute which was cancelled by Vineet Chand's goal on the 79th minute.

Navua was a man down after Sailosi Livatalo received his second yellow card in the match in the 83rd minute and two minutes later, Lautoka skipper Alvin Avinesh sealed the 3-2 win through a powerful volley.

Navua coach Saiyad Ali said they were still building the team as most of the players were in the development stage.

He said their major focus was the national league and maintaining its place in the Super 8.

Lautoka coach Dennis Singh earlier said they would have to review their performance and decide a way forward.
