Back to back minor premierships for Waitakere

6:15 pm on 15 February 2009

Waitakere United have won back to back New Zealand Football Championship Minor Premierships with a 1-0 victory over Hawkes Bay in Napier.

The Fijian international Roy Krishna.scored in the 88th minute and the three points from the win

leaves Waitakere eight points clear of Auckland City and Manawatu with two rounds to play.


Hawkes Bay are on 19. level with Waikato but ahead on goal difference, with Wellington on 17.

Head Coach Chris Milicich says it's great to wrap up the Minor Premiership so early so they can concentrate on the play offs and winning the O-League.

But Milicich says Auckland City showed they are finding form with their big O-League win over Port Vila.

And he says Waitakere still have to go to Vanuatu before hosting Auckland.
