The Nadi Football team will miss the services of defender Rupeni Rabici when they take on Lautoka in the first semifinal of the Vodafone Fiji FACT 2019 at Churchill Park this Saturday.
Rabici was shown a direct red card from referee Avinesh Narayan in their final pool match against Nasinu for an unsporting behaviour.
Fiji Football Association competitions manager Amitesh Pal confirmed Rabici was out for two matches.
“Rabici’s direct red card rules him out for two matches,” Pal said.
“This means he is out of the tournament as far as Nadi’s Fiji Fact campaign is concerned.
“No other players will miss the semifinals while the single yellow cards cancel after the completion of the pool games.”
Lautoka battles Nadi in the first semifinal at 1.30pm this Saturday while Ba take on Suva in the second semifinal at 3.30pm.
