Nasinu falls short against champs Lautoka

Newly promoted Nasinu side displayed a commendable performance against defending champions Lautoka, despite a 4-2 defeat in the first match of the 2024 Digicel Fiji Premier League at the Uprising Sports Centre in Pacific Harbour today.

Lautoka’s offense was led by star striker Sairusi Nalaubu, who opened the scoring in the 13th minute, setting the pace for the match.
