I-League: Pailan Arrows face Shillong Lajong FC

Kolkata: Pailan Arrows will face Shillong Lajong FC in their 19th round I-League match at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata. Pailan drew their last match against Salgaocar SC


Though Pailan Arrows are yet to register their first outright victory but they have managed to hold many top teams in the league voiding them of straight three points.

With 8 points in their tally from 16 matches, Pailan Arrows will be counting on the home advantage as couple of days ago the young team had put in a stupendous performance, avoiding last year’s league champion of 3 points.

“The boys are playing well but it’s just that we have not been able to convert the chances that came our way. The team is in high spirit especially after the last game against Salgaocar,” quipped Pailan Arrows Technical Director Sukhwinder Singh.

Shillong Lajong on the other hand will have their away victory against bottom placed team HAL on back of their mind, when they face Pailan Arrows.

Lajong will also be counting on their new signings Rennedy Singh and Sushil Kumar Singh to help them continue their winning streak. Lajong has 21 points from 18 matches.

Even Lajong coach was in praise of Arrows and stated “Pailan Arrows is young, competitive and an organised squad and that is quite evident the way they played their last match.”

“It is not going to be an easy game for us and we will have to play extremely well to pocket three points to secure ourselves from relegation zone,” Pradyum said.
