Ba banks on discipline

Vodafone Ba football coach, Shalen Lal credits the team’s discipline as being the cornerstone of their progress in the Fiji Airways OFC Champions League.
The Men in Black defeated AS Pirae 2-0 yesterday to book a spot in the semi-finals against Team Wellington and Lal says they will need to maintain their cool against the Kiwis.
“We are here to play football. The boys know that they have to be disciplined because we don’t want to miss any players come the next game. I guess the boys have done wonderful so far because we have conceded yellow cards but nobody will miss the semi-finals; so that speaks that the boys are really disciplined.”
Ba goal-keeper Misiwane Narube copped a yellow card in the match against AS Pirae after clashing with Heiaii Tavanae in stoppage time.
Ba will face Team Wellington in the semi-finals on Tuesday at 7pm at the ANZ Stadium.
Prior to this clash, defending champions Auckland City takes on Gaitcha in the first semi-final at 3:30pm.
The Fiji Airways OFC Champions League final will be held at the same venue next Sunday at 7pm.
