Lautoka was able to hold Suva at ANZ Stadium, the Blues do not win for a while in the Vodafone Premier League, but the particular outcome of this match seems a good recovery start for the team coached by Ravinesh Kumar as they draw 1-1 with one of the best teams so far in the season.
All goals of the game came in the second half: at the 48th minute of play the forward Sairusi Nalaubu proved to continue his fantastic goalscoring form opening the account for the Capital City Boys with a close range finish. With this goal, Nalaubu is now the top scorer of the season in the Vodafone Premier League.
Lautoka equalised the clash at the 57th minute of the match through former Ba midfielder Sitiveni Cavuilagi; the new Lautoka signing is being very efficient for the Sugar City Boys as he scored one more goal for his new team – Cavuilagi combined well at the edge of the box and give no chance to Suva’s goalkeeper to level the scoreline.
Both sides were unable to score a winner being the 1-1 result the final outcome of the clash. The draw is not a good result for Suva as they allow Rewa a chance to increase their advantage at the top of the table, but the point earned is enough for Suva to retake the second-place in the table from Ba as they have a better goal difference.
