Team Wellington will hope to make the most of their first final when they play Auckland City in the Fiji Airways OFC Champions League  final on Sunday.

Being newcomers into the competition, coach Matt Calcott said playing the final could be unpredictable.

“You never know going into a final on what could happen. We need to ensure that we are applying ourselves well and we work ourselves into the game,” he said,

“We have had some good tussles with Auckland City this year and we plan to continue that on Sunday and hope for the best.”

Calcott said though they may be new to the tournament, most of their players have had experience playing in finals which is an advantage for them.

“You never know going into a final on what could happen. We need to ensure that we are applying ourselves well and we work ourselves into the game,” he said,

“We have had some good tussles with Auckland City this year and we plan to continue that on Sunday and hope for the best,” Calcott said.

“Some of our players have been in the New Zealand representative sides. So there is a lot of experience in the team, which is good for us.”

With nothing to lose, Calcott said the experience alone in the competition will benefit the players.

“Win or lose obviously its good experience especially for the players,” he said.

Team Wellington will face Auckland City tomorrow at 7pm at the ANZ Stadium, Suva.
