Mumbai FC - Churchill Brothers Preview: Jamil's men look to do the double

Mumbai FC

Mumbai FC will be looking to register another win over Bhowmick's men as they face a Red Machines side desperate for three points...

Mumbai FC face Churchill Brothers SC in a round 25 I-League encounter in the Shivchhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune.

The Mumbai outfit are coming from an impressive 1-1 draw with Dempo FC in the last game week which saw them move ahead of Rangdajied United on the table.

With only two games remaining this season and both at home, eighth-placed Mumbai FC (25) will be keen to make their home advantage count hoping to improve their position and completely get relegation out of their minds.

Khalid Jamil will be counting on their center backs to provide another clinical performance after the last game, which saw Sandesh Jhingan nullify the threat of Tolgay Ozbey to great effect. They have 13 draws, which is the highest among any team and it signifies how important their back four have been throughout the season.

Churchill Brothers are in a difficult position in the league where a win do them a world of good and take them to 11th position in the league, should United Sports Club not win their game against Mohun Bagan on Sunday.

Churchill played out a 1-1 draw against Sporting Clube de Goa in their last game in which their strike duo of Anthony Wolfe and Balwant Singh were the main culprits with many missed chances.

The Red Machines have also played an AFC Cup match after their last league game, which means they are going into the game slightly fatigued side, with only three days of rest.

Balwant Singh will be the key man to watch after an impressive season with nine goals already. He has saved his side plenty of times this season from difficult positions and at this crucial juncture, he will look to bring out the best in him.

The last time these two met, Churchill Brothers were beaten 2-0 in Goa at the start of the season. Mumbai FC will be confident for a similar result.
