The Hindu - - SPORT - Amitabha Das Sharma

Hav­ing started its east­ern In­dia so­journ with a con­fi­dent win over In­dian Ar­rows at Bhubanesh­war, Chen­nai City FC will be look­ing to sus­tain the mo­men­tum when it meets Neroca FC at the Khu­man Lam­pak Sta­dium on Mon­day. The vis­i­tors are perched on top of the league stand­ings with 33 points from 15 matches, and a win here will boost their chances.

With at least three sides bat­tling it out in the ti­tle race, Chen­nai City can ill af­ford to rest on its oars with just four rounds re­main­ing. Head coach Ak­bar Nawas in­sisted on the need for full points against Neroca and also wanted the side to be more cre­ative and not lose shape in its push for vic­tory.

“We have to greatly im­prove our game com­pared to what we did against In­dian Ar­rows. We were not cre­at­ing enough chances in our pre­vi­ous match and we can­not af­ford that against a side like Neroca which is very fast in at­tack,” he said.

The team will look to th Spaniards — Roberto Eslava, San­dro Ro­driguez, Nestor Gordillo and Pe­dro Manzi — yet again. The match starts at 2 p.m.
