Shillong Lajong is currently in the 8th position with 13 points and will be looking to grab all the three points at their home ground tomorrow.
SLFC Head Coach Desmond Bulpin said that the team is looking for a win tomorrow but the home side will miss the services of certain players due to injury.
Bulpin also mentioned that there will be 4 boys who are just 17 years old sitting on the bench for the game against Pune FC.
“If we perform as well as we trained, we can beat any team. And at home we are always the stronger side but it is important that the team improves its away form.”
He also said that, “lower ranked teams are doing much better now compared to the last season and the league is getting very competitive.”
Shillong Lajong will be looking to turn things around this time and will look to bank upon the home support, known to be one of the most passionate fans in this part of the country.
