Stallions happy despite scoreless draw

LAUTOKA and Nadroga fought out a scoreless draw during the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League at Churchill Park yesterday.

Both teams created chances of scoring but lacked finishing.

Nadroga had the best chance of finding the back of the net midway in the second half but Watisoni Kamoka diving header went wide of the post by centimetres.

Nadroga coach Joseph Nitya Nand said they were satisfied with the one point playing away from home.

Nand said it was very hard to win despite missing a few opportunities.

"Lautoka was chasing the win and we weren't," he said.

"We did not have good turnout during training after the Fiji FACT and now the players have to become serious."

Lautoka coach Dennis Singh said his players lacked the killer instincts.

"No guts no glory, it's that simple," Singh said.

"We wanted three points from the match but Nadroga came out with the intention of a draw which they achieved. A win would have lifted the morale of the players and the fans.

"Now we have to focus on the next game. The critics who are coming out of their shells should come to our training session and see what is happening. We need a lot of support.

"It is a tough road in the league competition and teams like Nadroga and Navua are not easy to play."

Suva leads the competition with 18 points followed by Ba with 16 points, Nadi with 15 points, Labasa with 12 points, Rewa with eight points, Nadroga with five points, Lautoka with four points and Navua remains at the bottom with three points.
