Dreketi stopper out of decider

National goalkeeper Shaneel Naidu will play no further part in the 2016 INKK Mobile Battle of Giants for Dreketi after copping an injury in the team's 1-1 draw against Nadi yesterday.

The 21-year-old picked an injury to his head straight after Nadi's goal and had to be taken off the field. He was rushed to the Colonial War Memorial Hospital for observation and treatment and has been told to rest for at least a week.

His absence will be heavily felt by the Northerners who are still in the running for the semifinals and need a positive result in their match against defending champs Rewa today. A win will see them through while a draw will also keep them in contention as Group A remains wide open with all the four teams- Suva, Nadi, Dreketi and Rewa standing a chance.

Dreketi faces Rewa at midday while Nadi and Suva will clash at 2pm.
