INEXPRIENCED Lautoka will face an uphill battle against top of the table Nadroga during the Skipper Cup at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka this afternoon.

Lautoka is second last on the points table having secured only one home win of the season.

Majority of the players in the Lautoka team are playing at this level for the first time.

It will also be the first time for them to play at Lawaqa Park against the champion Stallions.

Lautoka assistant coach Viliame Satala said there were no injury concerns after the last gasp win against Tavua at Churchill Park last Saturday.

Satala said the boys would have to step up against Nadroga.

"This is a big game for these players who will be fronting Nadroga for the first time," he said.

"They will give their 100 per cent in the battle.

"It will not be easy as Nadroga is always hard to beat on their home soil.

"With only a few rounds remaining, we need to move up the ladder and get a top eight placing at the end of the competition."

In other matches at 3pm today, Ovalau will host Tailevu, Macuata will face Nadi at Prince Charles Park, Northland will play Tavua at Gatward Park and Vatukoula will host Naitasiri.
