Wilson out, Mishra returns to boost Whites

By Reginald Chandar

Stylish striker Joseph Mishra makes a return to Suva’s lineup this weekend after missing the crucial encounter against Lautoka last Sunday.

Mishra was tied up with family commitments last week and could not attend training which prompted officials not to consider him but the former Navua marksman is available and is expected to pair up with Solomon Islander Ralph Sherwin.

Suva coach Gurjit Singh said Mishra’s return will give him more options upfront as he will be able to shift players around during the team’s tour of the north.

“We badly missed Joseph against Lautoka and are glad to have him back for the two matches this weekend against Labasa and Savusavu,” said Singh.

“His work-rate is very good and he is a hardworking player. He will surely be in my lineup and I am expecting some good goals from him.”

Meanwhile, left-back Joshua Wilson will not travel with the team as he has two yellow cards to his name and needs to miss matches.

According to Singh, Wilson’s absence will be felt by the team as he has been a regular.

“Joshua has been a consistent player in defence and he will be missed but I have an equally capable replacement in Abdul Mosheem who is an upcoming youngster and plays with a lot of passion.”

The Whites depart for Labasa tomorrow after and will take on the Babasiga Lions at 6pm on Saturday before facing Savusavu at 3pm on Sunday.

Suva currently sits on the second spot on the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National Football League points table with 12 points.
