HERO I-LEAGUE: Arrows aim to wrap up season on a high

Kolkata, February 27, 2019: Indian Arrows will fancy their chances of grabbing another win when the AIFF developmental side faced Mohun Bagan on Thursday at Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan (VYBK) in Kolkata.

The game is scheduled for a 5 PM IST kick-off.

Mohun Bagan currently sit in the sixth spot with 26 points from 18 matches while Floyd Pinto-coached Indian Arrows are a spot behind on seventh with 18 points from 19 matches.

Indian Arrows coach Floyd Pinto said in the pre-match press conference, “Definitely the campaign has been more successful than last season, we are not concerned about the relegation though we are fighting for it. The boys are only getting better with time.”

“Mohun Bagan will be playing at their home ground which will be an advantage for them, but we are hoping to get the three points tomorrow. The attitude of the boys is much more positive. We are looking forward to the Hero Super Cup and I am confident with our abilities for tomorrow’s match.”

Mohun Bagan will start favorites though. However, their record of one defeat, one draw and one win in their last three games will be worrisome for their form, while Indian Arrows have lost two and drawn one going into Thursday’s game.

Cameroonian striker Dipanda Dicka’s double strike had settled the issue in the first-leg clash between the two sides. Khalid Jamil, looking for nothing less than a win said, “We are prepared for tomorrow’s match. We have to fight as we fought before and will be playing with a good team and the opponents should not be taken lightly. They are young and fight for every ball. This is our last home match of this season and we should be at our best.”

On the other hand, the Arrows have exhibited no fear of losing and will look to finish on a high. Coach Floyd Pinto could be proud of his work for the season and that of his boys and a win in the last game against Bagan will be the proverbial icing on the cake.
