The Goan outfit go into the game lying at the bottom of the I-league table with just 7 points. They will be hoping to bounce back after suffering a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Bengaluru FC in their last fixture.
While Lajong heads into this game with a morale boosting win over Goan side Salgaocar SC and is currently at the fourth position with 17 points in the I-League standings.
Shillong Lajong FC Coach Thangboi Singto said, “It is tough to play 3 matches in 9 days including the long journey from home to Goa.”
“The team is upbeat. We will be missing Uilliams who is out due to injury and Minchol is also very doubtful. Glen might be back for tomorrow’s game”.
“Churchill Brothers is a good team and we have to work as team in order to get positive results”.
“Together and united, nothing is impossible”, he concluded.
The Reds will look to continue their impressive run to the season having lost just one game and winning two out of their three away games this season. Lajong will look to maintain their position in the table as they seek to go for an outright win and pick up all the three points in Goa tomorrow.
