Real Kashmir Play Churchill Brothers In I-League Today

SRINAGAR- Real Kashmir FC is all set to take on Churchill Brothers FC today, Tuesday, January 24, in an I-League 2022-2023 fixture at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco da Gama, Goa.

The Srinagar-based side has endured a torrid away form and haven’t won a game in six matches. The team was defeated 2-0 by defending champions Gokulam Kerala in their last outing. The defeat condemned the Snow Leopards to fifth place in the I-League table and face the Red Machines who have lost just once in their previous eight games.

In the reverse fixture played at Srinagar’s Synthetic Turf TRC, Real Kashmir had edged Churchill Brothers 1-0. However, considering the form both teams are in, the hosts could exact revenge on the Snow Leopards and move above them in the table.

Real Kashmir head coach Mehrajuddin Wadoo thinks the travelling aspect of an away game has an impact on the results.

“Travel can sometimes be a factor before an away game as it leads to fatigue, but there can be no excuses,” Waddoo told AIFF.

“When we are on the field, we have to give our best and win the game. Yes, we haven’t won a game in quite some time, but tomorrow will be another opportunity against Churchill Brothers,” he added.

However, the former international player believes his team can get a decent result.

“When we played them in Srinagar, we got a positive result, but now they have signed many new players. They are playing well and winning more games which creates a positive vibe. We will have to be at our best against a confident team,” Waddoo said.

The match starts at 4:30 PM.
