Trio back for Navua
5 May, 2016, 12:00 am
NAVUA will be boosted with the return of three of their key players ahead of the clash against Northland Tailevu in the Vodafone Senior League on Sunday at Thomson Park in Navua.
Defender Isikeli Naulu, utility Michael Kumar and veteran player Saveci Rokotakala missed their game against Lami.
However, the trio’s inclusion will add firepower in Navua’s quest to play in Premier Division again.
Navua vice-president John Wise said Navua would field a strong team.
“We have learnt our lessons from the 2-2 draw against Lami and we know where we lacked,” he said.
“These players will make their presence felt in the match. Naulu had been one of the good players in the team as he had featured for Navua in the league and the Inter-District Championship previously.
“Rokotakala will surely be starting for us.”
Navua commonly known as the “Red Devils” of Fiji football had been struggling to make its way back in the team top division football after being relegated in 2014.
The side will heavily depend on midfield general Praneel Chand and striker Vineet Chand to steer their mission in the right direction alongside Rajnesh Raju and Praneel Kumar.
We are not taking Northland Tailevu lightly,” he added.
