East Bengal head coach Trevor Morgan discusses about the big clash against Bengaluru FC on 22nd January.

Kolkata side East Bengal defeated Churchill Brothers 0-2 at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco, thanks to two strikes from Haokip (31') and Ralte (45+1'). 

The win moved the Red and Gold to Seven points from three games, as they chase the leaders on the table.   

Despite the comfortable victory over the Goan outfit, East Bengal coach Trevor Morgan seemed discontented with the result. The 60-year-old believed that his side missed a couple of chances which could be easily converted.

''I don't think I am ever satisfied. You can never be satisfied with the game. We can improve a lot all over. I think Wedson (Anselme) missed a good opportunity. Jacki (Jackichand Singh) missed a good chance. On another day that could have been costly,'' he explained.

The two goals in the first half of the game grabbed the three points for Trevor and company. To add to it, the visitors pulled off a clean sheet from the fixture. However, the Englishman looked unaffected by it. He added that The Red & Yellow Brigade will face the real challenge against Bengaluru FC on Sunday.

''I'm not relieved that we got a clean sheet. Our test is going to come in our next game against a settled team. They are a good side. They play a system for two or three years,'' expressed the former Dempo coach.

Lastly, on being asked if Churchill Brothers were an easy opponent to play against, he denied it. The ex-Kerala Blasters' assistant gaffer explained that his squad didn't have a trouble-free 90 minutes.

''You can never prepare for an easy match. If you make the match easy while you're playing, great. I don't think we made it easy for ourselves today but we created a two-goal cushion,'' he concluded.
