MARIST FC Head Coach Jerry Allen says the injuries in the team are worrying as they continue preparations for their OFC quarterfinal match against Vanuatu side Nalkutan FC.
Defender Michael Boso, first choice goal keeper Anthony Talo and flanker Alwyn Ray are currently recovery from injuries suffered during training and in their TSL Championship matches last week.
Coach Allen said the trio’s availability for the champion’s league quarterfinals will depend on their recovery.
“Michael Boso, Alwyn Ray and Anthony Talo are still recovery from their injuries which I’m still worrying about,” Allen told SunSPORTS yesterday.
“That is why I wanted to test some of the young boys in the squad at this level. The trio’s availability for us in the quarterfinals will depend on their recovery.
“If they recover on time then they will play, if not then they won’t have the chance to play for us,” he said.
The club meanwhile thanked their associate sponsors Bank South Pacific for their support in preparation for their OFC Champions League quarter final match next month.
“We would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank our associate sponsor, [BSP] for their sponsorship donation and generous support towards our preparation for OFC Champions league quarter final next month.
“Thankyou Bank South Pacific for your thoughtfulness, generosity, and continued support towards Marist Football Club,” a club statement said.
Marist FC who finished second in Group D behind Team Wellington FC of New Zealand will travel to Port Villa, Vanuatu for their quarterfinal match against Nalkutan FC on April 7.
