TAFEA FC is confident of dethroning the star-studded Hekari United in their first OFC Champions League clash at Ba's Govind Park.

After a friendly game against Vodafone Shop and Save Nadi on Friday, the Vanuatu-based side has set its target on the champion PNG outfit.

Team manager Stephen Felix said his troops had prepared well for the tournament and they were eager to show their class against Hekari.

He said the boys were in top shape and they are confident of their chances.

"Our aim is like all other teams playing in this competition, we are here for a purpose," said Felix.

"Our first focus is to do well against Hekari in our first game before we can concentrate on other pool games.

"The boys are also aiming to secure the semi-final spot and they know what is required in the pool stages."

Felix said the inclusion of some Fijian boys in the Hekari outfit would inspire the side to do well.

But he has faith in his side that they would deliver the goods for our fans here in Fiji and back home."

"All these boys are local players back home who have proven their worth to be in this team and I am confident they will give Hekari a good run for their money."
