Support needed

BA team manager Arvind Singh has urged the fans to get behind the Men in Black against Amicale in the Oceania Football Confederation Champions League semi-final at Govind Park tomorrow.

Arvind's plea comes after Amicale coach Nathan Hall stated that about 10,000 fans would be cheering for his team when Ba travels to Port Vila next week.

He said if Amicale could muster such a big support in Vanuatu than Ba should be able to do the same here.

"It is all about country pride," Arvind said.

"We need the support of the fans to boost the boys during the game. Amicale has a strong squad and our coach Yogendra Dutt has been working hard to set up a game plan to counter them."

Lautoka coach Dennis Singh believes the tussle would be between Amicale recruit Esava Naqeleca and Ba striker Osea Vakatalesau.

He said both players were in top form.

"Ba has not beaten Amicale in the last two outings but this will be a totally different story," the former Ba rep said.

"Amicale is a powerful team with their big Serbian striker Nickola Vasilic and defender Colin Marshall who has played for Aston Villa. So they have the international flavour

"Ba cannot afford to concede a goal. If you give them possession then they will punish you. For Ba they will need to lift the intensity.

"The boys must play their roles for the duration of the game. The fans need to come out in numbers to support Ba. They must have the feeling of Fiji in their hearts when Ba is playing."

The match will kick off at 1pm.
