VODAFONE Lautoka is hoping to improve when the side takes on AS Venus of Tahiti in the second Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) Champions League in New Zealand tomorrow.

The Blues made a bright start in the OFC Champions League defeating Madang FC of Papua New Guinea 3-1 on Sunday.

AS Venus was thrashed 7-0 by Auckland in the opening round.

Lautoka coach Kamal Swamy told the OFC website that they made a positive start in their pursuit for a quarter-final berth.

"Unfortunately, the other team had a few players missing so we had an advantage," Swamy said.

"I think we need to improve a lot if we want to progress in this competition."

"Defensively we need to improve, where we set up our lines and the commitment of the players. That will help us in the next game."

The two teams from each group will qualify for the home and away quarter-finals.

Auckland City is the defending champion.
