Lautoka equalized in the first minute of the second half through Samuela Gavo but Waqa’s goal ensured maximum points for Ronil Kumar coached side.

Ba goalkeeper Misiwani Nairube was carried off the field in the second half and Isikeli Seva Junior made his debut.

The 18-year-old is the son of former Ba goalkeeper Isikeli Seva.

Lautoka was down to ten men in the 42nd minute after Sekove Finau was shown the red card.

Ba Football Manager Ranbir Singh says they came into the game confident of maintaining their VPL unbeaten run.

“Yes we are really proud of the boys and really happy to get away with the three points and we actually came here with a mission as I mentioned in the buildup we take a game at a time so yes our aim for this game was three points and we are really proud of the boys”.

The match was on hold for a while after the officials wanted spectators to practice social distancing.

Meanwhile, Lautoka Football Coach Ravinesh Kumar says despite their loss last night, the game is a learning curve for his players.

“This game gives me a benchmark of my analysis and playing against Ba and doing the analysis is very good playing a great team for Fiji and great players is really good and I can do a better analysis of this game and improve the team and the players as well”.
