One-match ban

LAUTOKA sweeper Poasa Bainivalu copped a one-match suspension and a fine following his red card against Nadroga on Saturday. Bainivalu was sent off the field in the first half by referee Rakesh Varman after he elbowed John Rounds Jr in an off the ball incident. Lautoka won the match 1-0. He missed the game against Suva yesterday. Bainivalu needs to pay a fine of $345 to be eligible for the semi-final this Saturday. Nadi's Ilimotama Jese and Ba's Mavileko Nakama also copped automatic one match suspensions after copping consecutive yellow cards.

Navua out

NAVUA bowed out of the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants without scoring a single goal during the group stage. Yesterday Navua recorded its third straight loss going down to Nadroga 1-0. Mohammed Rahman Taslim scored the winner for the Stallions in the first half. Navua lost to Lautoka and Suva by the same score line. Navua is the only side not to score at the 2014 BOG.
