Calcutta/Mapusa: Fresh fr-om their impressive 3-0 win over Pailan Arrows, Kingfisher East Bengal will be aiming to build on the positives gained from the encounter when they take on Salgaocar in their next I-League tie at the Duler Stadium in Mapusa, on Saturday.
Thanks to some disappointing results in recent games, East Bengal had all of a sudden found the going tough. But the match against the Arrows showed that their hunger and desire to win were very much intact.
Coach Trevor James Morgan would certainly want his players to carry on with the same intent against Salgaocar.
East Bengal will be bolstered by the return of defender Uga Okpara, who was suspended after an ugly fracas against Prayag United Sports Club stopperback Bello Rasaq.
Importantly, Okpara’s return will provide Morgan with enough options at the back-line.
