Steel meets style as Blasters take on ta­ble-top­pers FC Goa

Sunday Express - - SPORT - MARTIN JOSEPH

THE In­dian Su­per League is like a con­stantly mov­ing el­e­va­tor. League po­si­tion of teams can change dras­ti­cally after every match day.

Ker­ala Blasters host league lead­ers FC Goa at the Jawa­har­lal Nehru sta­dium in Kochi on Sun­day and both sides want noth­ing but the three points go­ing into the in­ter­na­tional break. “Every team is un­der pres­sure. If we see the ta­ble, I think we can still qual­ify. With a few wins, the ta­ble can change very dras­ti­cally,” Ker­ala Blasters as­sis­tant coach Thang­boi Singto said on the eve of the clash.

Blasters come into the game after a painful 1-2 de­feat against Bengaluru FC. Since their win in the first round against ATK, Blasters played out four suc­ces­sive draws, fol­lowed by a de­feat. The team had been in win­ning po­si­tions against Mumbai City and Delhi Dy­namos be­fore con­ced­ing late goals.
