thumbnail Hello,

The Manipuri insisted that his side were unlucky not to pick three points against Prayag United, while refusing to comment over the length of the grass at the PJN stadium in Goa.

Sporting Clube de Goa coach Soibam Ekendra Singh insisted that luck didn't favour his team as they drew 2-2 against Prayag United in their first match of the I-League on Sunday.

"I'm satisfied with the result and with the way my boys played, but luck didn't favour us as we missed a few chances at the end," he said.

Singh pointed out that Sporting could have taken the lead before Yusif Yakubu gave Prayag a 2-1 advantage, before James Moga forced the two teams to split points.

"Victorino [Fernandes] missed a lot of chances," said the 54-year-old, and stuck to his statement that his side was unlucky.

"That's why I say that luck didn't favour us."

Asked if he had anything to say about the length of the grass on the pitch, a concern earlier raised by Prayag coach Sanjoy Sen, the Goan team's man-in-charge refused to comment.

"I have no complains. I will not comment on the ground and infrastructure," he maintained.
