Team Wellington are setting their sights on a maiden OFC Champions League title after easing into the semi finals for a third straight season.
The New Zealand domestic champions thumped Fijian champions Ba 8-0 in their Group B decider in Koné at the weekend to finish with a perfect three wins from three.
Tom Jackson bagged a hat-trick, while Ben Harris added a brace.
Captain Bill Robertson said, after finishing runners-up the past two seasons, they’re targeting top spot.
“Everyone’s been absolutely fantastic, even the players who haven’t maybe had as much gametime over the three games – it’s been a real squad effort,” he said.
“We’ve just got to keep doing what we’re doing, keep the standards high: that’s my role, it’s the staff’s role, it’s the senior players’ role.
“To make sure that we don’t become complacent, we keep this momentum going and we really drive home those standards.
“And we believe we have got all the qualities to go all the way this year, in both our domestic campaign and the Oceania Champions League.
“So we’ve just got to keep driving it home and keep the boys doing what they’re doing and hopefully we can be successful.”
Team Wellington join AS Magenta in the final four after the New Caledonia club toped Group A in Noumea.
Meanwhile Group B hosts Hienghéne Sport signed off from their maiden Champions League campaign with a 3-1 win over Cook Islands qualifiers Puaikura FC.
The OFC Champions League resumes on Saturday, with Group C and D kicking off in Auckland and Papeete.
Auckland City FC host Malampa Revivors from Vanuatu, Western United from Solomon Islands and Lae City Dwellers from Papua New Guinea.
Tahiti’s AS Tefana host Vanuatu’s Erakor Golden Star, Marist FC from the Solomon Islands and Fiji’s Rewa.
