Vakatalesau in doubt for Nadroga clash

By Sunil Sharma

Star striker Osea Vakatalesau is a doubtful starter for Ba against Nadroga in the National League tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Wailotua native from Tailevu sat out of the team's match against Navua due to his one match suspension last week and has not turned up to training this week.

Ba manager Arvin Singh told FijiLive Vakatalesau is nursing a niggling ankle injury  and may not be declared fit for the encounter.

"Osea still has an injury and we do not want to risk him. Since he has also not trained this week, he may not play against Nadroga."

"We have other options in terms of strikers and will field other boys if he is ruled out. Maveliko Nakama and Tuimasi Manuca are currently in form and may get named in the starting line-up."

“Nadroga is an unpredictable team and their win over Lautoka will surely fire them up. We will not be taking them lightly at all since they held us to a goal-less draw in our first round match."

"Our players know what to expect from Nadroga and coach Yogendra Dutt will be putting up a formidable combination tomorrow," added Singh.

The Men In Black lead the points table with 31 points after playing 12 games and a win overthe stallions will push them further up on the ladder while a win for Nadroga will push them out of the relegation zone.

The Ba vs Nadroga match kicks off at 3pm at Govind Park.
