Tailevu Naitasiri wins opening leg

Tailevu Naitasiri registered a 2-1 win over Rakiraki in the first leg of the Viti Levu playoff at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori  this afternoon.

The hosts with the likes of Ravinesh SIngh, Jale Vota, Jonas Naceva and Josaia Ratu dominated possession in the first spell and got their opening goal just before halftime through a Hoteshwar Padarath header.

Tailevu Naitasiri led 1-0 at the break and Rakoraki had the chance to equalise after the break through a penalty but the attempt by George Goundar hit the post and went out of play.

Tailevu Naitasiri increased its lead midway in  the second spell through striker Jale Vota who was up against his home town.

Rakiraki managed to pull one back in the dying stages of the match through Ili Gaunavou Junior.

Tailevu Naitasiri now needs a draw in the second leg in Ra to claim its spot in the premier final against northern winners Taveuni.
