HUAWEI PS United’s have a score to settle and bow out of the season on a high note when they clash with MRDC Hekari United in the opening match of the Southern conference of the National Soccer League tomorrow.
The Huawei versus Hekari match is the first of the three match that will be played at Bisini Sports Complex on Saturday and it will be the last round match of the Conference format.
PS prodigal son Erickson Komeng who parted from his former club after 16 years said it would not be easy for his boys to take on the competition leaders.
The man from Kairuru Island in East Sepik said Huawei could provide a good challenge against Hekari United if their approach and attitude were changed on match day.
Komeng said the boys have trained so hard for this match, and everyone was looking forward to putting up a good fight against the Jerry Allen-coached team.
The former PNG international said if the Huawei-backed team wanted a good result, the players had to re-adjust their approach towards the game on Saturday.
Komeng paid tribute to the Hekari management and coaching staff for their part in helping him and making him what he is now.
He said he was looking for a good challenge against his former team mates.
He said he knew Hekari midfielders would pin him down but he was sure of getting good support from his team mates.
Huawei PS coach Nathan Vincent said Komeng’s acquisition during the window period was a big plus and buy for the club.
Hekari coach Jerry Allen said he wanted to complete the season on a good note – to remain undefeated.
He added that Hekari always respected Komeng as a former teammate and friend but the challenge was for the top spot.
The result of the game will have no effect on the Hekari as they are the outright winners while a win for Huawei PS would be a plus to help them evade the tail-ender’s tag.
In the second game at 1230, FC Port Moresby will take on Eremas FC while in the afternoon’s main game, Gigira Laitepo takes on PKA Rapatona.
The unofficial point ladder: Hekari 27, FC Port Moresby 13, Rapatona 11, Gigira Laitepo 9, Huawei 8, Erema 8
