Ba remains optimistic

THE Vodafone 4R Electrical Ba team will need to defeat Amicale by two clear goals on Saturday to qualify for the final of the Oceania Football Confederation Champions League.

The Yogendra Dutt coached Men in Black regrouped on Monday after the shock 1-2 loss to the Vanuatu club in the first semi-final at Govind Park the previous day.

However, the team's training has been disrupted by the rainy conditions.

The side will depart for Vanuatu on Saturday morning arriving at Port Vila only a few hours before kick off.

Team manager Arvind Singh said a few players were recovering from niggling injuries.

"Playing away from home is always difficult," he said.

"But we have set our goal and the boys will give their 100 per cent. Laisenia Raura received a knock in Sunday's game and is recovering well. For the fans, they should not lose hope and keep faith in the boys."
