Salauneune, Gonerau out of Stallions' clash

NADI will miss the services of Lekima Gonerau and Jone Salauneune for the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League clash against Nadroga at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka on Sunday.

The duo have been ruled out because of injury.

Shop N Save Nadi will go into the match as the favourite having dispatched Navua 3-0 despite a sluggish performance last week.

Nadroga upset Nadi twice in the competition last year. However, the Stallions haven't had much success this season recording only one win from ten outings.

The side was thrashed 8-1 by Ba last Sunday.

Nadi team manager Kamlesh Sami said they recorded good attendance at training on Monday.

Sami said they would not be taking any chances against their opponents.

"Nadroga always rises to the challenge on their home turf," he said.

"For our boys, the coach is looking for improvement. Ball possession was our downfall last week. We gave possession away by making silly mistakes."

A win will maintain Nadi's second placing in the competition.

In other matches on Sunday, Ba will host Lautoka at Govind Park, Suva will battle with Labasa at the ANZ Stadium while Rewa will face Navua at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori in the Southern derby.

All matches will kick off at 3pm.

Suva leads the competition with 24 points followed by Nadi with 21 points, Ba with 19 points, Labasa with 13 points, Rewa with 12 points, Lautoka with ten points, Nadroga with six points and Navua at the bottom with four points.
