Lajong FC in a �do-or-die� situation

By The Assam Tribune

SHILLONG, May 23 (PTI): With several teams at the bottom half struggling to get out of relegation zone, Shillong Lajong FC, who are currently at number eight position in the points table, face a do-or-die match when they host Pune FC here tomorrow.

Their hopes of securing tickets to the top-tier next season were dealt a big blow when a resilient Sporting Club De Goa won last Wednesday.

�At the moment it is difficult, the situation we are in, but we have to come back strong and that is what we have been trying to do these few days,� Lajong Manager Thangboi Singto said.

Commenting on the defeat in the last outing at home, Singto said, �A point would have been good for us but again the difference was (that) Odafa took his chances.�

Pune FC, on the other hand, found their feet again when they beat East Bengal to end their losing streak. The Pune side, which began the season as title contenders, recently slipped out of contention.
