Some players are still nursing injuries in the Hyperchem Pharmacy Lautoka side ahead of the Digicel Fiji FACT which starts on Friday in Suva.
Lautoka FC President Shalendra Prasad says they’ll still have to turn up despite the challenges.
Speaking to FBCSports this afternoon, Prasad says they are currently working on how to handle the situation.
“Preparation has been going well, but a few of our players are injured, but we are trying to work with their physio to see that the team goes up to par for the match against Suva.”
These injured players are Muni Shivam, Saula Waqa and Aporosa Yada.
Prasad says they are hopeful to see these three players recover before they meet Container Haulage PTE Ltd, Extra Supermarket and All Freight Logistics Suva FC on Friday.
