East Bengal coach Trevor Morgan will be looking to continue his unbeaten run in the league when his side will face Churchill Brothers in the I-League match to be played at Tilak Maidan, Vasco on Wednesday.

Coach Morgan was high on confidence as his side has won the last match in Pune.

“We are here well prepared and looking forward to taking all three points from here,” Morgan said.

Churchill have lost both their last matches but the Englishman doesn’t want to take them lightly as he said, “I am expecting a very difficult match. They were excellent against Mohun Bagan and very unfortunate not to get anything. They conceded very late on against Mumbai FC so that leaves no point and they’ll be desperate to get some points on the table. So we can’t expect anything less than a very difficult game,”

When asked if he will be happy with a point if not three he said, “I think at the moment, all of our games are must win games, if we want to be challenging for the title. We are certainly trying and we are prepared to win the game. We’ve got some more firepower than we had in our first game.”    

East Bengal skipper Lalrindika Ralte was also present with the coach Morgan for the pre-match media interaction. The midfielder started his career with Churchill and spent four years with the club

“Churchill is a good team and they have a professional setup. I have played for them five years back. I am very happy to see them back and now will be playing against them,” Ralte said.
