Lautoka has cemented its spot at the OFC Champions League next year after beating Suva 2-0 in their Vodafone Premier League match today at Ratu Cakobau Park.
Today’s win ensures the Sugar City can have another crack at the championship after they were humiliated by Wellington 6-0 in the final earlier this year.
Poasa Bainivalu scored the Sugar City’s first Goal when his clearance from his own 18-yard box was miss-timed by Suva goalkeeper Simione Tamanisau, while Benjamin Totori scored the second.
Meanwhile in the other match played today at Govind Park in Ba the home team thrashed Rewa 3-0.
Saula Waqa led the onslaught in the first half with a wonderful header after a well-timed corner kick from Kishan Sami.
Abu Zahid slotted in the second goal in the second half before a Meli Codro bullet-shot from the edge of the box sealed the win for the man in black.
In tomorrow’s lone match Nadi will play Tavua at 3pm in Price Charles Park Nadi, where they hope to get their first win against them this season.
