The Ronil Kumar-coached Lautoka side maintains its lead on the Digicel Fiji Premier League points table after the end of round four.

The Blues drew nil-all with the Daichi West Company Pte Ltd-sponsored Ba team last weekend.

Lautoka has earned seven points from two wins and a draw together with Rewa but are on top with a better goal differential.

Rewa recorded a one-all draw against Navua on Sunday.

Lautoka, Rewa, Ba and Navua are the only undefeated teams in the competition.

Nadi moved up to third place after a 1-0 win against Labasa at Subrail Park last Saturday.

The Kamal Swamy-coached side has won two matches with one defeat and is on six points.

Ba has dropped to fourth place after the scoreless result against neighbour Lautoka.

Fiji Football Association competitions manager Amitesh Pal said round one matches would be played later after it was postponed because of adverse weather last month.

The DFPL is on a two-week break to allow for the FIFA International Friendlies which starts in the country next Monday.

The Digicel Fiji under-20 side will also participate in the tournament as part of their preparations for the FIFA U20 World Cup in Indonesia.
