KOLKATA, March 3: It has been quite a disappointing season for ATK in the Indian Super League with the former two-time champions failing to make it to the play-offs.

They now find themselves battling to avoid a last-place finish against NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) in the final league game of the season at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan here tomorrow.

ATK have only managed 13 points so far but will finish below NorthEast United (11 points) at the bottom if they lose their concluding league clash.

Much was expected of ATK at the start of the season. Though ATK have struggled right from the start, finding victories have proved to be a tough ask for the team due to change of coach midway.

ATK have won only three games this season and have suffered defeat in their last three games of the ISL.

Their 5-1 drubbing at the hands of FC Goa proved too much for interim coach Ashley Westwood, who decided to step aside from his responsibilities as head coach. Robbie Keane has now stepped in as player-manager for the final game against NEUFC.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference, the former Tottenham striker told reporters that even though he was only informed about his new responsibility at the club yesterday, he is still well prepared for the challenge at hand.
