Drudru out as Sherwin awaits assessment

By Sunil Sharma

Suva football officials are hoping striker Ralph Sherwin is fit to feature against Lautoka Sunday following the unavailability of Samuela Drudru.

The Solo striker was injured at training a fortnight ago and was forced to sit out of the Whites last two league outings.
 
“Our team physio and the doctor will advise us later today on his availability. We are hopeful that he has fully recovered as we really need his service upfront,” coach Gurjeet Singh said.

Drudru has been ruled out for Sunday’s game because of two yellow cards.

“On a positive note, midfielder Shivam Nathan is back from New Zealand,” Singh said.

“Nathan is back which a plus for us going into the game. Lautoka won’t be easy after holding Ba so surely they will aim to beat us.”

Meanwhile Suva youth manager Sandeep Roy has been roped in as the Whites’ acting manager in the absence of Nitya Nand who is tied down by work commitment.

Suva lies second on the standings with 33 points from 15 games.
 
Suva host Lautoka at Ratu Cakobau Park at 4pm on Sunday.
