Sarju expects Sugar City players to lift game

LAUTOKA coach Lambert Sarju expects the Blues to notch up a level against Nadroga today after recording a 1-0 victory against Navua yesterday.

Ratu Josefata Dugucagi netted the lone goal immediately after halftime which was enough to get them off to a winning start.

Navua the minnows in the tournament, was without regulars Seveci Rokotakala and Praneel Kumar but rattled the Lautoka defence at times.

Hardworking Edward Justin played gallantly for the Sugar City team.

Sarju said they failed to keep possession in the first half.

"The boys did not stick to the game plan to hold possession," he said.

"They were not using the ball upfront but eventually things changed in the second half with that early goal. We had more attack with more possession.

"Soccer-wise they played well but it was a bit fast at times.

"Finishing is an area of concern. We have Nadroga next and I expect the boys to step up."

A win against Nadroga today should earn the Blues a spot in next weekend's semi-final and could spell the Stallions exit from the tournament.
