Ba wants momentum running

Ba who has qualifies for the semifinal for OFC Champions League will not let the moment down by letting the same core of players taking the field against Amicale.
“We will have the momentum running against Amicale going into the semifinal later so the same players who have been playing so far may play this Saturday,”Khan said.
Ba is the only unbeaten side in the group which has Hekari United, who has made their debut in the FIFA World Club Championship in 2010, Amicale FC and debutant in the OFC Champions League Solomon Warriors.
Ba FA manager said Sanni Issa has so far lived up to the expectation of the fans and the team scoring in every round of play for the Men in Black.
Issa is the leading goal scorer in the competition after scoring in every round which took his goal scoring tally to eight.
“Sanni (Issa) has jelled well with the team and has really done well in the past matches. He knows very well what is to be done on the field and we hope he will do wonders in the matches ahead,” Khan said.
According to Khan Ba striker Osea Vakatalesau will not play against Amicale as he is still nursing a knee injury which he sustained playing against Solomon Warriors in Solomon Island.
“He will not be able to play this Saturday as he is still recovering from his injury and we hope he gets recover well ahead of the semifinal.” He said.
Khan is urging all the supporters to come and support the team as this would be the last match Ba would be playing at home in the group stages.
Ba defeated Amicale FC at home 2-1 last Saturday and booked their place in the semifinal which will be played later.
However, who would be the opponent of Ba in the semifinal is still unknown at the moment as Waitakere United, Auckland City and AS Dragon are all in the running for the semifinal berth but it will be all known after the final round of matches this weekend.
The match will start 3pm at Govind Park.
