Oceania Champions League: Lautoka ready for Auckland City

Update: 7:33PM LAUTOKA coach Kamal Swamy says they will try their best against defending champion Auckland City in their last group stage match of the Oceania Champions League in New Zealand tomorrow.

Wins over Madang 3-1 and AS Venus 2-1 have secured Lautoka a place for the first time in the quarter-finals but they are not keen to bow down despite the situation. 

"We must realise that Auckland is a champion side and have been winning this competition for so many years. We do respect them but we will give it our best shot," Swamy told OFC Media. 

"If you watched how Madang played in the second half, they gave them a really good go when they held possession so if we keep possession, we have an outside chance to beat them."

The match kicks off 3pm at Trust Arena in NZ.
