The Ba side is all but bundle out in the 2018 Oceania Football Confederation Champions League.

This was after the men in black  lost their second match- against Lae City FC 1-0 yesterday.

Ba head coach Ronil Kumar said the loss was frustrating for them.

“We lost two games and we learnt a lot from the defeat and we are going to go back and work on our weaknesses.

“Next game we will come back fighting,” Kumar said.

Ba started well in the first 45 minutes before goal keeper Josaia Ratu was replaced in the second half after suffering a knee injury.

“Ratu was one of our best goal keepers, he did well on the field, but it was unfortunate he had to leave the field of play because of injury.

“Lae City was a better team and they scored to win

Lae City’s Emmanuel Simon scored the only goal for the match.

Meanwhile, Ba faces Tupapa FC in their last pool match on Friday at 3pm.
