Head coach of Shillong Lajong, Desmond Bulpin said that playing against Mumbai will be tough and Minchol Son and Ebi Sukore, the two star players of SLFC will not be playing tomorrow as both of them are injured.
He also mentioned that Boithang Haokip also has a shoulder injury but it is not serious and will likely be on the bench while Shillong lad, Eugeneson Lyngdoh will be starting tomorrow along with Samson, who will be playing in the midfield.
18 year old center back, Lalrinzuala of the Shillong Lajong FC Academy will also be featured in the game.
Coach Bulpin said that he is looking forward for his lads to repeat their inaugural game performance.
“I hope that the boys will continue to have the fighting spirit in them and give their best just the way they played against Mohun Bagan.”
He concluded by saying that,” I heard there are many people from the North East who are living in Pune and they never miss Shillong Lajong’s games. We hope to see them supporting us in the stadium against Mumbai FC who is a very good side in the League.”
