    It's underway and I'm Anselm Noronha reporting to you Live! from the Duler stadium in Mapusa-Goa
  • Shillong Lajong XI: Ralte (gk), Passah, Milan, Glen, Matsugae, Lallawmzuala, Haokip, Tuboi, Jibon, Tlang, Fanai
  • Churchill Brothers XI: Al Sebai, Micky, Balmuchu, Shabana, Balwant, Anthony, Lenny, Yumnam, Arindam (gk), Satish, Balan
  • We've got the line-ups for today's match here...
  • The Reds of Shillong however, are flying high in fifth place and a win will catapult them into the top three, albeit temporarily, for the first time this season. With all to play for, this should definitely be a juicy encounter
  • The title defense hasn’t quite worked out the way the Red Machines would have wanted, as they fight for survival instead
  • Just in case you haven't noticed, we are done with the first leg of matches. Round 14 of the I-League is upon us and it brings with it the reverse fixtures of the 2013/14 league season, with the first of those being the duel between Churchill Brothers and Shillong Lajong
  • Defending champions Churchill Brothers look to overthrow the visitors from Shillong in what the home team see as a must-win game
  • It's a battle of the Reds, although it will be the home side who will be donning the colour of blood in this encounter - who will win this one?
