Koloale shift focus to Hekari

The ‘men in green’ have their work cut out for them against the Papua New Guinea club who are currently preparing for the FIFA World Club Cup in the United Arab Emirates in December.
However, Koloale may look to bank on their underdog status against Hekari United and hope that their opponents have not overcome the shaking of their confidence after losing their opening match against Vanuatu side, Amicale.
Koloale themselves also need some rebuilding of their confidence after their unexpected 2 – 1 defeat at home against Fijian champions Lautoka in front of 11 000 fans in a match locals hoped would be an easy win for them.
However, coach Peter Eke says that Koloale has let go off their mistakes from their first game and are looking forward to their second match.
Eke is trying to turn their loss into something positive saying that it will help players to improve on their failures and come out stronger against Hekari United.
Koloale is yet to announce their team for the trip to Papua New Guinea but revealed that only 16 players will travel with only 2 officials accompanying them, the coach and team physiotherapist, Charles Gauba.
Totori remains at helm
The Koloale captaincy remains with Benjamin Totori despite concerns too much pressure is being put on his shoulders with the forward already being marked out as their primary hit man.
Eke has placed all his confidence in Totori and says that he has the experience needed and has worked well with the other players in the team both on and off the field.
Mostyn Beui also maintains his position as the vice captain.
Koloale will leave for Papua New Guinea on Thursday.
