A goal from Lautoka striker, Valerio Nawatu has granted the Blues a semi-final berth in the Vodafone Fiji FACT after ousting Nadi 1-0 at Govind Park in Ba this afternoon.
Nawatu’s header connected from a free kick from team-mate, Zibraaz Sahib in the 31st minute.
A win or a draw was vital for Lautoka who, after beating Nadi, have taken a temporary lead over Suva to lead with 9 points, (Suva with 7 points) in Pool Two.
FBC News manager, Indra Singh says Sahib proved pivotal in creating scoring opportunities for Lautoka against a poor Nadi defensive line.
FBC commentator, Raymond Stoddart added, the Blues then tightened their defence in the second half, to keep Nadi at bay.
Suva and Lautoka are in the semi-finals which will be played on Sunday morning.
Currently underway is Suva and Savusavu.
A win by the capitals, will put them back on top of Pool Two.
