Amicale determined not to take Koloale lightly

Amicale beat Koloale 2-0 last year at Port Vila Stadium and lost ot Solomon club champion 0-1 in Honiara and this weekend the wantoks meet again.
Last two weeks, Amicale draw with Hekari 1-1 in Vanuatu and Koloale lost heavily to Auckland City 1-4 in Honiara.
Although Amicale and Koloale were regarded as sister clubs but this Saturday’s game will be a must win for one of the two and the local heroes are determined to keep their feet on the ground and play to win if they want to repeat last year’s story.
“This squad is filled with self-criticism as it always can be better and has to be better,” said Mr. Chabod.
“We only do things step-by-step and when we have learned our lessons from our first game against Hekari United.”
Flying wingers Joachim Waroi, Fenedy Masauvakalo and Alick Maemae made an immediate impact on their return from injuries last week in the TVL match against Tupuji Imere in which Maemae and Fene scores two goals each and Waroi hits three.
That gives coach Luke Eroi a full squad to choose from to face the Koloale, although defender Alphonse Bongnaim is likely to start on the bench because of injury.
Rexley Tarivuti should return at right back after being replaced by Paul Young for the Tupuji Imere match to avoid more injuries on their defenders.
“We haven’t got anything to lose in this match. Koloale have some very good Solomon players. We just want to do the same as we did against them last year when we beat them 2-0 but last year is gone and today is another game in the same ground.,” concluded Jean Yves Chabod.
Amicale will play Koloale at 3pm this Saturday 19 November 2011 at Port Vila Stadium. Ticket are on sale now at Au Bon Marche shop in town near the market house.
