Gerard Nus has a plan’ - NorthEast United focused on form revival as Bengaluru FC come calling
NorthEast United are currently on a six-match winless run and have won just once in the last nine games in the ongoing Indian Super League (ISL) season.
Having faced back-back defeats against ATK Mohun Bagan (2-0) and Hyderabad FC (4-2), they face Bengaluru FC on Tuesday in an attempt to recover their dip in form. Bengaluru FC are also coming on the back of a poor run of form, having lost four ISL games in a row for the first time in their history.
However, NorthEast assistant coach Alison Kharsyntiew is not taking anything for granted. He said, "First of all, we know that Bengaluru have lost four games in a four but every game is new and we have to respect them. I’m sure that the players will give their best tomorrow. Whatever the outcome, we know our duty. We have to forget the last match, focus on the next match and put in 100 percent to win.
“We have a simple approach. If we lose the ball, we try to win it back. If we have the ball, we have to create chances and score,” he professed.
“Our coach (Gerard Nus) has a plan. There are always negative and positives. The main thing is to improve on the negative points and strengthen our positive points. Tomorrow is our first game of the second half of the season and I’m sure that the players can give a good performance tomorrow,” the former Shillong Lajong coach stated.
