Ba's Waqa ruled out of decider

Prolific striker Saula Waqa will miss Ba's all important OFC Champions League Group B clash against Team Wellington tomorrow.

The 21-year-old has been suspended for a match after picking his second yellow card in as many matches against Puaikura FC on Wednesday night. He scored Ba's lone goal in the match.

Seasoned striker Maveliko Nakama and Samuela Nabenia who previously started from the bench are top contenders to pair up with Abbu Zahid upfront in Waqa's absence.

With four points, Ba is in a must win situation against the Kiwis. Team Wellington has 6 points and a draw would be enough for them to book their spot in the semifinals.

The all exciting clash will commence at Stade Yoshida in Kone, New Caledonia at 6pm (Fiji Time).
