The Auckland FC football coach isn't daunted by the challenge posed by the second leg of the O league final.

Ramon Tribulietx guided the New Zealand side to a 2-1 win against the Tefana in Auckland yesterday afternoon.

Tefana substitute, Axel Williams, provided the visitors a valuable away goal with 20 minutes remaining.

Tribulietx says conditions shouldn't be too ardous in Papeete on May 12.

"The surface is artifical so we know it's going to be in good condition and we can play our style, its a big field.Its god for us playing up on that field. The heat is going to be another issue. But we're training four or five times a week. We should be fit enough and hopefully mentally prepared to give it our best."
