Pune: Bharat FC would aim to break their winless streak when they take on Kolkata giants and I-League football table toppers Mohun Bagan in a pivotal rescheduled round 4 game here tomorrow. Smarting from the 0-2 defeat against Sporting Clube de Goa, Bharat FC’s head coach Stuart Watkiss has demanded a a better performance from his players.
“We did not really put in the best of performances against Sporting. We did not display the commitment and heart that we are usually known for. It has been a tough two days and I hope that the lads are thinking about the mistakes they made and what they have to do on Tuesday to get a positive result,” said Watkiss.
Bharat FC are currently in 11th spot in the table with 12 points from 15 games. On the other hand, Bagan drew 1-1 against Mumbai FC on Saturday and are currently leading the standings with 32 points from 15 games.
But with Bengaluru FC and Royal Wahingdoh FC snapping at their heels, the Kolkata outfit will be going all out for three points according to their head coach Sanjoy Sen. Bagan will welcome back former Cameroon international Pierre Boya to the 18-man squad while India international Balwant Singh is also expected to start the game
