Stern Test for Khalid & Co. as East Bengal lock horns against Resilient Railway FC.
After a perfect start in CFL 2017 -2018 Khalid & his boys might have to face a rigid task when they face a resilient Railway FC. The task might be an uphill for the red & gold brigade as their foreign recruits from Trinidad & Tobago, Willis Deon Plaza & Deon Mitchell is away on an international duty & will miss some vital ties for East Bengal FC.
Khalid may have to reshuffle his lineup that had an easy outing against Customs in their last match. We may see Sohrabuddin Mallick & Mehtab Singh in starting XI. Mitchell has been a rock at the back & also contributed with vital goals when needed, Plaza, on the other hand, has yet to rediscover his Midas touch that everyone had a glimpse during the first leg of I-League 2016-2017.
The last match saw huge waves & deluge flooding entrance gates of the club stadium, but still ardent East Bengal FC fans stormed the galleries with their support towards the mother club. Weekends might see a drop in the numbers but the atmosphere will be intense on & off the field.
The match will be aired live on 28th August 2017, by Kolkata TV from East Bengal ground & kick will commence from 2:45 pm.
