Dunadamu ruled out of Rewa clash

By Sunil Sharma

BOG finalist Labasa will take on Rewa in the National Football League tomorow without its star striker Maciu Dunadamu.

The stylish marksman copped an injury in the final of BOG against Ba late last month and has not recovered fully.

Dunadamu is currently in Ba with his family and yet to return to Labasa and brief team officials on the progress of his recovery.

Fiji U23 utility Ilisoni Logaivou who missed the Battle Of Giants due to injury will make his return for the Babasiga Lions since rejoining from Rewa in the new window and is expected to fill in for Dunadamu.

Coach Epeli Levaci says Dunadamu's absence will be heavily felt but he has other capable players in his squad who can stand up to the challenge.

"Exactly, Maciu will surely be missed as his presence upfront always puts pressure on the opposition defence and his ability to score good goals always puts us in the driving seat," he said.

"Ilisoni is returning from injury and Kavaia Rawaqa is also back so we should be able to put up a formidable team against Rewa although the PNG boys have returned."

"We have put the BOG final loss behind us and are now looking forward to the IDC and the remaining National League matches. Rewa like always will be tough to beat but I am banking on my players and the home support to register a victory tomorrow," he concluded.

The Labasa vs Rewa match will kick-off at 2.30pm at Subrail Park.
