“In last match which was our home tie, we conceded goal in last moments against Chhinga Veng. It shattered our hopes of qualifying for the I-League. There are still slight chances but that depends on various permutations and combinations during the game,” said a club official.
“The qualification into final round has given everyone a hope. The owners of the club are backing it fully now and have got vision for future as well. The preparations for next season would be started early and club will have very good chances of making it to I-League,” he said.
