Lautoka has topped Group B of the 2016 INKK Mobile Battle Of Giants after beating Nadroga 2-1 in its last match at Ratu Cakobau Park today.
The Singh’s Rentals sponsored Blues have been one of the most consistent sides in the tournament and march into the semis with 9 maximum points from three matches.

Nadroga scored a late consolation via Abdul Mosheem.
