Churchill picking up momentum
After draws with Dempo and JCT, Churchill Bros. inflected a humiliating 2-0 defeat on Mohun Bagan which forced the Mohun Bagan (coach) to resign. Churchill Talisman Odafa Okolie has found the back of the net 4 times already this season and is looking deadlier with every progressing match.
Missing links in Mumbai FC
Mumbai FC will be missing the key services of defender Anas Edathodika and winger S Kutty Mani as both of them have been suspended due to double booking. “We will surely miss them in the lineup but we have good bench strength, hence will not compromise”, says Khalid Jamil. Faizal Rehman is only replacement summoned from Mumbai FC.
Both the teams have met four times before. Churchill has the bragging rights with a slight advantage with one win and three draws. “Past results do not mean anything this is a new year and a new season. We have a good start and we are not satisfied only with that. We are looking for all three from this one as well. The key will be to defend well and score from the opportunities we create”, said a confident Coach Khalid.
The game will be decided basis Mumbai FC's ability to score against the Churchill's resistance and to defend the big threat form Churchill's Odafa Okolie.
Cheer for Mumbai FC!
