Thangboi Singto: Top seven is where we want to be

The Indian gaffer of the north eastern outfit was pleased with the performance of his players in the draw against East Bengal…

Shillong Lajong held East Bengal to a 0-0 draw on Friday at the Salt Lake Stadium, Kolkata. Both the teams had their chances to scalp three points but failed to convert the chances that came their way.

“Against East Bengal we are happy with one point. The players stuck to the plan. We played well in the first half. Overall I am satisfied with their performance,” said coach Thangboi Singto.

The Manipuri coach mentioned that his side was tired in the second half which allowed East Bengal to dominate the final 15 minutes.

“After seventy five minutes little bit of fatigue set in. There was humidity.”

He stated that the club hopes to finish in the top half of the table come the end of the season.

“Seeing the strength of the other teams, we always wanted to finish in the top half. We have almost 22 players who are under the age of 23. So realistically top seven is where we want to be,” he signed off.
