The Kamal Swamy-coached Lautoka football team will need to be consistent in their style when it plays the Henderson Eels on Wednesday.

This was after the side walloped 10-man FC Morobe Wawens of Papua New Guinea in its opening Group B clash at Churchill Park, Lautoka yesterday.

“It’s our first game and we could have scored more goals. We need to work on our finishing,” coach Kamal Swamy said.

“The boys did what they were supposed to do but we need to be consistent in our next game against the Eels.”

What happened: In the 5th minute, striker Benjamin Totori was fouled in the box and defender Zibraaz Shahib slotted the penalty goal past goalkeeper Jason Bendi to lead 1-0. In the 43rd minute Totori added another goal for the host to lead 2-0.

Halftime: Lautoka FC 2-0 FC Morobe Wawens.

Defender Shahib scored the third goal in the 63rd minute.

In the 88th minute Kavaia Rawaqa added another goal.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men after striker Jason Farrock fouled Dave Radrigai and referee Nick Waldron flashed the second yellow card. Striker Samuela Drudru scored his team last goal.
