Vasco (Goa), Apr 21 (PTI) Churchill Brothers SC will look for home advantage as they play their last home match of the ongoing I-League against Chennai City FC here tomorrow.
Churchill Brothers have been stuck to the sixth place ever since their victory over Bengaluru FC, Mohun Bagan and East Bengal.
But after these games, they managed a draw against Shillong Lajong, Mumbai FC, but lost to Aizawl FC in their last match, which has put them in tight spot for survival in the tournament.
New entrant Chennai City and Minerva Punjab do not have to fight for relegation.
The axe is now on Churchill Brothers, DSK Shivajian FC and Mumbai FC.
If Churchill Brothers and DSK Shivajian, who have 17 points each, collect three points from their two matches remaining, then Mumbai FC who is at the bottom will get relegated.
“We are still not safe from the relegation zone and tomorrow’s three points will definitely be a huge boost for us. I have asked my boys to give their best,” Churchill Brothers coach Derrick Pereira said.
“Their has been misunderstanding in the defence which has resulted in our defeat against Aizawl in the last match.
We have sorted our mistakes and now looking to finish on a winning note in our last two matches,” he told PTI.
Defender Rowilson Rodrigues is back from injury which will give more stability to the defence.
“Chennai City have done well in their maiden appearance and we need to play to our potential in order to win tomorrow,” Pereira said.
