RoundGlass Punjab FC will resume its 2021-22 Hero I-League season against Churchill Brothers FC Goa on March 4 at Naihati Stadium, with kick-off scheduled for 7.30pm.
Currently, RoundGlass Punjab FC tops the points list and started their I-League campaign with a 2-0 win over Rajasthan United in December 2021. However, the competition was then postponed due to a COVID outbreak. The club resumed field training in Kolkata last month and will now face the Goa side in its second game of the competition.
Ashley Westwood, head coach of RoundGlass Punjab FC, addressed the media at the official pre-match press conference: “We got back together as soon as we found out the league is rebooting. It was a matter of doing a mini preseason and it “It is very important that we have managed to get all players out of this period injury free. We have a close group and a competitive element on our side.”
Speaking of tomorrow’s opponents, Westwood said: “Churchill Brothers are one of the contenders for the I-League title. We are looking forward to the game and see where we stand as a team. We will try to be up front and take the game to the opponent. We will do everything we can to try and win.”
Goalkeeper Lalthuammawia Ralte said: “We worked hard on and off the pitch and communicated well with each other. During the break we all trained individually at home and also spent some quality time with our families. We are confident that the competition is restarted and tomorrow we hope to show everything we have trained for.”
