Also worth looking at:



  •  
     
    Churchill Brothers can take a huge step in their quest towards becoming the I-League champions of the 2012-13 season if they defeat Armando Colaco's Dempo. The Red Machine are on the back of a 1-0 loss to Warriors FC in the Asian Confederations Cup (AFC) Cup and will look to avoid an extension of that in the I-League.
     
     
    FACTs & STATs:

    • Churchill Brothers have won only one of their last five encounters with Dempo SC
    • Churchill Brothers are one among two sides in the I-League who have conceded less than 20 goals this season with 19 goals. East Bengal is the other team to have been breached only 15 times this season. 
    • In the nine home games that Churchill Brothers have played this season they have lost only once while Dempo SC have lost three of their six home games. 
     
     
    Dempo head coach Armando Colaco is also believed to be absent from the technical area, assistant Mauricio Afonso hence taking over
     
     
    Star midfielder Beto is still out injured and Churchill Brothers head coach Mariano Dias being in Germany, the club's technical director will take over the bench
     
     
    Can the Red Machine take one step closer to the title?
