Lajong is currently in the third position with 3 points while Mohun Bagan is sitting pretty at the number one position of the Group C table with 7 points.
In the third match of Group C, the Shillong lads held Air India to a 2-2 draw while the leaders Mohun Bagan won 1-0 against Churchill Brothers. The only hope for the reds to advance to the next round is to beat Mohun Bagan and Churchill winning against second place Sesa in the other Group C game.
Though tomorrow’s match will be very crucial for the Reds in order to advance to the final round of the tournament and Assistant Coach Alison Kharsyntiew said , “Whether we qualify for the final round or not, our team will play to win.”
While Shillong Lajong FC Under 20 Coach said, “Mohun Bagan are a very good team as well as very well organised. They are strong in their attack but we have no problems because we have a strong defence as Zodin returns to the team from suspension. The boys are mentally ready for the game and I believe the the boys will give their best. We will fight to the end and hope we will come out with three points tomorrow.”
