The DSK gaffer was delighted about the return of the Goan club in the I-League...

DSK Shivjians host Churchill Brothers on Saturday, at the Balewadi Sports Complex in Pune.

The visitors, though have struggled on their return. A depleted side, Churchill are yet to pick up points in the league so far. This has not changed the approach of home team coach Dave Rogers who said, "I don't expect any game to be easy. Just because Churchill haven't won a game yet, we were in the same position after two matches. They might not have a little bit of luck in their games but in this league, anybody is capable of beating anybody on their day."

Rogers continued, "We'll approach this game in the same manner that we've approached the other games. We are expecting another tough game. There are no easy games in this I-League. The players are ready and prepared in the right way, both mentally and physically."

The 41-year old also expressed his joy at the return of a club like Churchill Brothers after a gap of three years. The Englishman said, "Looking forward to playing Churchill. It's good to see them back in the I-League, that is the place where they belong."

Speaking on the personnel available for the opposition coach, the head coach opined, "Churchill Brothers have a good coach and a lot of good players and if you don't prepare well and under estimate your opponents, you are bound to face problems.”
