Toata to focus on fitness

By Taromane Martin

SOLOMON Warriors FC Head Coach Moses Toata says his boys will need to work on their fitness level as they await the quarterfinals of the 2018 OFC Champions League.

Coach Toata told SunSPORTS yesterday after arriving back in the country Tuesday.

The former national rep said that his side will continue with their preparations not only the quarterfinals but also for the upcoming TSL Knockout series which is set to kick off on March 15 at the Lawson Tama Stadium.

“At the moment we will concentrate on the knockout which is also important and we will use it as our build up for the next stage of the Champions League,” Toata said.

“Having played and defeated teams like AS Dragons, I now have a better angle of what is expected to come.

“Obviously we will need to step up a little in our preparation. We’ll need to work on our fitness because when you play against a team that is technically good,” he said.

Meanwhile draws for the quarterfinal stage of the OFC Champions League is set for March 5. From the draw it will determine who will play who.

Group winners from each pool will host their respective quarter final matches.
