Blues key players out

INJURIES and work commitments have forced Lautoka coach Dennis Singh to field a depleted squad in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League clash against Labasa today.

Striker Josefata Dugucagi and defender Isikeli Jeke have work commitments.

Edward Justin twisted his ankle at training on Thursday while senior players Alvin Avinesh and Zibraaz Sahib are suffering from groin injuries.

Singh said he did not expect all of this to happen before their important game against the Babasiga Lions.

"It is the hard and uneven surface that we train on which has caused the injuries," the former Lautoka and Ba rep said.

"We will field players who are fully fit. They have to take a positive approach into the match. Their attitude must be that "we need to get the three points".

"It is not over and out right now but the matches are finishing. If we don't win then it won't change our points standing."

Lautoka lost to Labasa 2-1 in the opening round.

Today's match at Subrail Park will kick off at 1pm.

In other matches at 1pm, Navua will play Nadroga at the ANZ Stadium and at 3pm, Nadi will host Rewa while Ba and Suva will clash at the ANZ Stadium.
