Kolkata: Mohun Bagan will look to continue the momentum when they take on Minerva Punjab FC in their penultimate Hero I-League home game here on Wednesday. The Green and Maroons are high on confidence after finally scoring in four matches.

Chief coach Sankar Lal Chakraborty, who is only a game old in his new position after Sanjoy Sen quit midway following a string of poor results, will be looking to lift his side from mid-table incongruity.

“We are trying hard to do well but unfortunately that’s not happening. No one wants to lose or draw but it happens.

“The big teams, who are title contenders, will never want this bad patch to continue. We have promised to come back soon,” he said.

Sony Norde is still nursing his injury but the focus will be on Cameron Watson, who played the full 90 minutes on Sunday against Aizawl FC in a 2-0 win but looked well short of full match fitness.

On the other hand, Minerva Punjab FC replied well with a slender 1-0 victory over at Gokulam Kerala FC over the weekend after they lost their first game of the season away at the home of defending champions Aizawl FC.

Having played a game less and three points ahead, the Warriors from Ludhiana will be hoping for a repeat of the 1-1 draw in the corresponding fixture — coincidentally the season opener, if not for a win.
