Maciu Malo
Friday, August 22, 2014

LAUTOKA will leave no stones unturned in their effort to win the Innk Mobile Battle of the Giants title when the tournament kicks off at Govind Park on Saturday.

The side last won the title in 1985 and mentor Lambert Sarju is shouldered the huge responsibility of restoring the lost glory for the Sugar City fans.

Sarju said the tournament would be tough as all teams would want to win the title.

The side is pooled alongside Nadi, Nadroga and Navua.

"Our pool is not easy," said Sarju.

"Nadroga and Navua are equivalent to Ba and Suva as they have been impressive recently.

"We will take all teams as they come and surely we will give our best in all the games."

Sarju said a lot of hard was needed to improve the team's performance.

"We are still on the rebuilding phase and there is no pressure on the team," hhe said.

"We are prepared and like all other participating teams.

"It's being 28 years since we last won the BOG and we will do our best against all teams."

The Blues will be spearheaded by seasoned campaigners such as Jone Vonu Junior, Alvin Avinesh and evergreen veteran Maika Waqa.

Lautoka lost to Ba in the final last year at Govind Park in Ba.
