Blues' uphill battle

Zanzeer Singh
Saturday, August 02, 2014

THE Lambert Sarju-coached Lautoka team will face an uphill battle when they take on Ba in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League at Govind Park tomorrow.

Ba hammered the Blues 6-2 in the opening round at Churchill Park in February.

Lautoka has been undergoing changes during its training sessions with Sarju who replaced Dennis Singh last month.

A cloud of doubt surrounds the availability of Senirusi Bokini, Iliesa Lino and Edward Justin who are recovering from injuries.

Sarju said the players had been reminded about continuity after their two wins recently.

"On the day anything can happen," he said.

"We have been working on our structure.

"However, the changes cannot produce results overnight. I need some time with these boys.

"Ba is tough to beat on their home soil and the boys will need to be focussed and defend well.

"Their chances on attack and finishing is always clinical."

Ba has maintained a low profile going into the fixture and the Men in Black needs a win to remain in the hunt for a top two placing for next season's Oceania Football Confederation Champions League.

In other matches tomorrow, Labasa will clash with Suva at the ANZ Stadium, Nadroga will host Nadi at Lawaqa Park while Rewa will face off with Navua at Ratu Cakobau Park.

All matches kick-off at 3pm.
