Ba wary of Fijian duo

Maciu Malo
Thursday, April 24, 2014

VODAFONE 4R Electric Ba expects tough game from the two Fijian boys in the Amicale side ahead of its OFC Champions League semi-final clash at Govind Park on Sunday.

Amicale defenders Ilaitia Tuilau and Esava Naqeleca are expected to provide tough competition to Ba's striking partners Osea Vakatalesau and Maciu Dunadamu.

Ba manager Arvin Singh said the two Fijian players in the Amicale side were familiar with Ba's game style.

He said the services of these Fijian boys would be a challenge to the men-in-black.

"Playing in the semi-final will be a different ball altogether and the presence of the two Fijian boys for Amicale will provide tough test for our boys," said Singh.

"These two boys have played against Ba on numerous occasions and they know what to expect from us.

"In fact they are expected to provide tough challenge to our strikers."

Singh said the side defeated five-time OFC champion Auckland City during the pool play and it would be an uphill battle for Ba to win.

"Amicale is a tough team but I know our coach is working tirelessly in trying to counter the opposition."

"This game is a do or die battle and we will do all it takes to win for our home fans."

Singh has called on the people of Ba to come out in huge numbers and support the boys.

The game kicks off at 1pm.
