Blues key players out

NIGGLING injuries have plagued Lautoka ahead of their crucial Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League clash against defending champions Ba on Sunday.

Goalkeeper Senirusi Bokini and defenders Poasa Bainivalu and Iliesa Lino are on the injury list.

Lautoka under new coach Lambert Sarju recorded its first home win of the season after beating Rewa 1-0 more than a week ago.

The Blues went down to Ba heavily 2-6 in the first round of the competition in February.

Sarju admitted that they face an uphill battle against the Men in Black at Govind Park.

He said the players would need to believe in themselves.

"We recorded two wins in as many matches since I came in," Sarju said.

"The fitness is on par but it will be the attitude of the players that will matter in this fixture.

"We have won two consecutive matches but the players will have to be focused."
