I-League: Shillong Lajong FC, Gokulam Kerala Gear Up To Salvage Pride
Shillong: In what could be a battle to grace the relegation and finish as high as possible in the I-League table, Shillong Lajong FC will take on Gokulam Kerala at the JLN Nehru Stadium, here on Friday.
Both teams are looking to get out of the relegation zone. In their only encounter against Gokulam Kerala FC this season, Shillong had to face a 2-3 loss at the EMS Corporation Stadium in Calicut.
Kerala who would have the odds to their favour having defeated Shillong Lajong FC earlier would look to capitalise on this psychological advantage to walk away with all the three points again.
The hosts would also look to grab three points to somehow reduce the relegation pressure. Shillong are placed at the bottom of the I-League table with 10 points from 17 games. What also adds to Shillong's concern is the defence line that has conceded 48 goals so far.
Kerala are placed just above Shillong in the points table with a three-point cushion. Kerala's performance has seen some positive change since appointment of their new technical director Gift Raikhan. The visitors are placed 10th with 13 points playing one game fewer. IANS
