  • 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?
