Nadi misses injured striker

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, June 25, 2014

SHOP and Save Nadi will miss the services of its prolific striker Jone Salauneune in the much anticipated Vodafone Fiji FACT semi-final clash against Ba on Saturday.

He was injured in Nadi's pool game against Navua and has been ruled out for three months.

Team president Navneeda Goundar said Salauneune's experience and class would be missed by the team and would not affect the team's preparation.

"We have other good strikers in the side such as Napolioni Qasevakatini, Samuela Drudru and Rusiate Matererega," said Goundar.

Goundar said it would be an uphill battle for his boys to beat the men in black.

"Ba has been consistent recently and they will be out to win their first title this season. But it's anybody's game and we will try our best and win the game."

The semi-final encounter will be a replay of last year's final where Nadi ousted Ba in the final to win the title.

"We respect Ba and we know they will be at their best on Saturday," he added.

Meanwhile, Suva will face Labasa in the other semi-final.
