Blues come from behind to hold Nadi

Champions Lautoka came from two goals down to hold Nadi 2-2 in their Digicel Premier League  fixture at Prince Charles Park tonight.
 
After a goal-less first half, Nadi's Solomon Islands import William Komasi scored their opener on debut in the 51st minute.
 
His fellow countryman Jaygray Sipakana made it 2-0 from the penalty spot in the 65th minute after Rahul Krishna was fouled inside the Lautoka box.
 
An own goal by keeper Vereti Dickson in the 72nd minute allowed the Blues to get back into the match, and a late penalty from Captain Zibraaz Sahib saw them salvage a draw after two straight defeats in the competition.
 
All in One Builders Nadi remains on fourth spot but now has 13 points while Lautoka is fifth with 10 points.
 
Lautoka travels to Subrail Park on Saturday to face Labasa in its next match at 1.30pm.
