The Vodafone Ba football side is not leaving any stones unturned as they prepare to battle Hienghène Sport in the Oceania Football Confederations Champions League quarterfinal this Saturday.
Head coach Ronil Kumar knows what it takes to prepare for the upcoming battle in New Caledonia.
“OFC Champions League have always been a different level of football compared to our domestic competition and going into the quarterfinal is a challenge put up for our boys.
“Hienghène will definitely come out strong in front of their home support but we will also have our plan to counter them,” Kumar said.
Technical advisor Shalen Lal said the boys are on the right path as far as preparations are concerned.
“There is pressure on us playing away from home but then again, we are trying to work out on the weaknesses that we had on the past three games during the group matches.
“We are doing well and I think if the boys follow all the things drilled in the training sessions, we will have a good result,” Lal said.
He said the experienced players of Malakai Tiwa and Abbu Zahid have a huge impact on the team.
“The experienced players are having a big impact on our youths especially Malakai Tiwa leading by example together with Abbu Zahid.
“Going into quarter final, playing at home they (Hienghène) must be well prepared like what Ba used to do when playing at home.”
The match kicks-off at 6pm this Saturday.
