Panaji (Goa) [India], January 25 (ANI): For NorthEast United, life in the Indian Super League (ISL) without Gerard Nus has been off to a positive start. And now they deal with a much tougher test of their qualifications when they handle ATK Mohun Bagan at the Fatorda Stadium, here on Tuesday.

With groups entering the last third of the season, NEUFC can afford say goodbye to slip-ups if they are to enter the playoffs. Fortunately, as they line up against a group that has actually been stingy at the back all season, they have actually discovered an unexpected source of objectives. Against Jamshedpur on Sunday, the winner was scored by Deshorn Brown, who arrived from Bengaluru FC recently. The Jamaican, who had stopped working to impress at Bengaluru FC, appears to have actually hit the ground performing at NEUFC.

” It’s a different design to what Bengaluru play. I think we will get more scoring chances here. I like the design and it will do better for me in the long run too. The distinction is that these men, they tried to penetrate down the middle as compared to Bengaluru. At Bengaluru, they attempt to head out large and play crosses, however the shipment of the crosses is not terrific that makes it truly challenging for the strikers to rating,” said NorthEast United’s Deshorn Brown.

Brown’s promising launching in addition to a prospective recover for Federico Gallego– who helped in both goals against Jamshedpur– augurs well for NEUFC.

” We’ll stay with the strategy. They are an excellent group however any group can beat any group. We simply need to start from the beginning and things will occur,” stated Brown.

For ATKMB, it’s everything about keeping in pursuit of Mumbai City FC in the hope that they will mistake. Antonio Lopez Habas’ men left it late to win their previous encounter game against Chennaiyin FC and the Spanish coach understands that NEUFC will provide a hard challenge also.

” I believe the group played well for 90 minutes versus Chennnaiyin. The players understood that we needed to win the game. We changed the system of how we play and under this new system, it was possible to score more goals,” stated Habas.

” We need to give respect to our opponents and we need to be at our finest to win the match. They are a hard challenger. They have great players and they will make it difficult for us,” he added. (ANI).
