I-League: Churchill brothers aim for Aizawl fc scalp

New Delhi: Confident Churchill Brothers will look to continue their winning run against defending champions Aizawl FC in a Hero I-League match in Vasco on Tuesday riding on confidence from a win over title aspirants Minerva Punjab in their last match.

Churchill ended Minerva’s unbeaten run to rise to seventh place with 13 points from 11 matches. And a 2-0 win on Tuesday will take the hosts above Aizawl, who are three points above them.

“The win against Minerva have put the boys in right frame of mind after we lost against Neroca,” said Churchill assistant coach Alfred Fernandes.

“From here on, we are looking to win all our remaining matches which will not only get us out of relegation zone but also help us finish at a decent position,” he said.

Fernandes said Churchill now looked a different side following inclusion of some foreign players.

“We have collected 13 points from the last six matches we have played. Aizawl are coming into this match without a win in their last three matches.

“They will come hard at us to collect full points and we are prepared for the challenge,” he said.

And Aizawl coach Paulo Menezes expects a tough encounter on Tuesday. “We need to play at our best if we need to win tomorrow. We are expecting a close fight,” he said.
