Maciu Malo

LAUTOKA will test their three overseas-based boys in their friendly game against Suva at the Fiji FA Academy in Ba this afternoon.

The imports Cory Chettleburgh of New Zealand, Solomon Islands Benjamin Totori and Vanuatu's Brian Kaltak have been training with the team and will be tested against the Capital City boys this afternoon.

Team president Abdul Kadar said the players were expected to combine well with the rest of the players.

He said it was important to have more game time and to perfect his team combination before facing the real test during the O'League competition.

"We will be fielding the three new boys for this game as we want to see their combination with the rest of the players," said Kadar.

"These boys are professional players and they are expected to jel in well to the team environment.

"We will use this game to gauge our strengths and weaknesses and see the areas to improve from."

Kadar said the team had been working hard on their finishing.

"We need to improve on our finishing especially make use of our goal scoring opportunities.

"We can't afford to make basic mistakes because the O'League is a different ball game altogether."

The game kicks off at 3pm.
