I am confident that we will fare well-Surinder Singh


The Minerva boss is taking the positives from his team's I-League campaign so far...

Debutants Minerva Punjab FC, despite an indifferent show, are in 8th position in the table, thanks to their goalless draw against fellow debutants Chennai City in the opening encounter.

However, a 0-4 drubbing at the hands of Mohun Bagan in the last encounter makes them a vulnerable unit especially against Lajong who are a tough side to beat at home.

Minerva head coach Surinder Singh asserted that despite going down 0-4 to Bagan in the last game his side are up for the Shillong challenge.

“The scoreline tells only half the story. Our boys did well in the second half (against Bagan) and created several chances. The performance gives me confidence that we will fare well here.”

Surinder also backed the idea of promoting youngsters in the side.
