TEAM Wellington arrived in the country last night confident of returning to New Zealand with the coveted OFC Champions League title.Head coach Jose Figuiera said they expected a physical and tough encounter against the Vodafone Lautoka Blues team in their final match at Churchill Park in Lautoka tomorrow.

He said the team needed to maintain composure to hold the host team.

“Lautoka has nothing to lose and they will give their best shot in our final game,” said Fuguiera.

“It is going to be an exciting feature and we are fortunate to have made a very good start in our first encounter last week.

“We will play to our best and hope to return home with the title.”

Wellington just needed a draw to win the title while the Blues needed a clear seven-goal difference to upset the Kiwis. The game kicks off at 2pm.
