The coach of the Kolkata outfit is disappointed with the lack of consistency shown by the referees in the league...
Mohammedan Sporting’s survival hopes in the I-League suffered a jolt when they went down to Shillong Lajong 5-4 on Wednesday.
With just one game to go against Mumbai FC, Mohammedan have to win the tie and hope for other results to go in their favour in order to avoid the drop.
“It is very difficult to stay up. We have to look at other teams' results,” admitted coach Sanjoy Sen.
“We lack consistency throughout the season. We have to go all out last match. If we can get 24 points then there is a chance to save relegation.”
In a game where shoddy defending was at its best, Sen acknowledged the same and said, “Luciano Sobrosa’s penalty miss was the turning point. I haven't seen such bad defending for long time.
“On one side it’s a valiant effort from my side to score after going down to ten men in the 12th minute itself but the defending was abysmal.”
Sen has hinted a conspiracy theory to jeopardize his team’s chances to survive the relegation scare and once again took a dig at the match officials for lacking consistency.
“The referring decisions vary greatly from match-to-match. In the last match against Rangdajied United when there was a foul in the penalty box against us, there was no card by the referee,” he said.
