Nawatu scores double in Lautoka’s win

By Sunil Sharma

Striker  Valerio Nawatu scored two second half goals for Lautoka as the Blues defeated Tavua 2-0 in the National Football League to record their eighth win of the season.

Tavua after the resignation of their acting president Ummat Mohammed looked depleted but played with a lot of guts and did not allow the star studded Blues to score in the first half.

Lautoka now has 25 points from 12 games but remains on fourth spot.

Nigerian Striker Kenneth Onyema also made his debut against Tavua today at Garvey Park but could not create much sensation as he was heavily marked by a stubborn defence.

Blues interim coach Lambert Sarju was satisfied with the win but said the poor ground condition affected their play.

“It was a good win, especially away from home but the condition of ground was not good, it was bumpy which did not allow my players to display good football," Sarju said.

"I am building up for IDC now and fielded some youth players so they can gel in well with the experienced players. Our development players are performing well and the future of Lautoka looks pretty bright."

 Tavua remains in bottom four with 11 points from 13 games.

Tavua will face Nadroga tomorrow at 3.00pm at Lawaqa Park.
