“The players did not play the way we expected but nevertheless Nadroga was a very good young side. It seems like they have good and experienced people guiding the side. They gave us a very good run and Lautoka could not stop their forwards and their midfield.”

He urges all Lautoka fans to get behind the team and continue supporting the players as they aim to get back on track.
