Lautoka lose first choice goalkeeper due to injury

One of the most traditional teams from Fiji, Lautoka had a good start at 2020 Inter-District Championship. Despite the 1-1 draw against Rewa, the team coached by Ravinesh Kumar performed in a decent level which brings lots of hopes to Lautoka supporters.

The bad news is that first choice goalkeeper Joela Biuvanua got injured in the 80th minute after fouling an opponent inside the box. He was replaced by Viliame Tabucala who saved the penalty kick taken by Setareki Hughes to keep Lautoka ahead. However, the Bluez did not manage to grab the three points because Gabriele Matanisiga equalized in the last minute of the game.

There is no further information about Biuvanua’s injury. Anyway he is expected to miss the clash against Nasinu in the second matchday of the tournament which means that Tabucala must be Lautoka’s starting goalkeeper today.
