The Lautoka Football side will start its OFC Champions League against FC Morobe Wawens at Churchill Park this Sunday.

President Abdul Kadar said the preparations had been going well for the past few weeks.

“We have played two matches in the VPL and the coaching and the technical staffs are working on trying to iron out our mistakes from those two games,” he said.

“Also, the Vodafone National Head Coach along with his goalkeeper coach Xavier has joined to provide their expertise to our Head Coach Kamal Swamy.

“So overall, we are preparing well and looking forward to starting the tournament on a good note.”
Kadar said the two imports Bong Kalo and Daniel Allen are gelling well with the side.

“We have just got in two new players and they are slowly blending in together with the rest of the boys.

“Majority of the players had a taste of Champions League last year and since then have played together.

So, the entire team is adapting well to what the coaches are wanting out of them.”

He said every match in the Champions League is always tough and so will be the first match this Sunday.

“FC Morobe Wawens is a new team out of PNG and I believe 2019 is their debut year in OFC Champions League as they just have been founded back in 2017.

“Teams from PNG plays a good game of possession-based football and we expect Wawens to do the same.

“Last year we started our campaign playing against Madang FC and it was tough so expect the same from the Wawens.

“We will however take each game as it comes and the boys knows the importance of each game.”
