And now the Minerva Punjab FC are desperately looking forward to win their first game in the league against the wounded Mumbai FC as they lock horns at the Guru Nanak Stadium in Ludhiana on Saturday, February 4, 2017.
As, when the Minerva Punjab FC’s coach Surinder Singh has been asked about Minerva being at the bottom of the table and if he could add more points on the table for the team, Surinder Singh stated, “Boys played their heart out and deserved to win in the last match. They are prepared to win tomorrow. We are working for three points. The boys are ready for the Mumbai FC challenge.”
On being asked whether the goal drought could be cured before next match, Surinder Singh commented, “We got chances in the game. Victor, David and Ivan Filatov all got chances to score. But the ball wasn’t put at the back of the net. Kareem had a good shot on target, but it was saved. We’re working on our striking force if we could add someone to score goals.”
“Loveday will be back with Kareem. It will be a good pair. They did some really good defending in the previous game.
We hope they will come stronger in the next game”, Surinder Singh added.
