Both the teams recently went head to head in the North East Super Series Football Tournament and Lajong displayed a stupendous performance to win 3-0 against USFC.
Head Coach of Shillong Lajong FC Desmond Bulpin said that ” I am positive that the boys will give a good performance tomorrow as long as they believe in themselves”.
“It will be a tough game tomorrow but we are hoping to win it”, he said.
The morale of the team is surely high as they won 3-1 against Pailan Arrows and drew against the mighty, Kingfisher East Bengal at home last Saturday.
He concluded by saying that, “It is the first North Eastern derby and United Sikkim are a tough team to beat at home. We are looking forward for a good game tomorrow”.
