Bordoloi Trophy: Mohammedan open campaign against Assam Police Blues

Bordoloi Trophy: Mohammedan open campaign against Assam Police Blues

GUWAHATI; Mohammedan Sporting Club hope to open their Bordoloi Trophy campaign on a positive note against Assam Police Blues in a Group B fixture on Sunday at Mukalmua Stadium in Nalbari.

TRAU FC and Barhoongkha FC are the two other Group B contestants.

The Black Panthers recently finished runners in Nagaon Independence Day Cup. 

Mohammedan, who are the second most successful team in the history of Bordoloi Trophy, have the right to consider themselves the favourites. But the previous success will be somewhat of a double-edged sword as it also makes them one of the sides others will be keen to beat.

“We have prepared for this tournament. We have been working together for a while, we have brought a good team here, a competitive team, which will perform to the best of their ability.” said coach Raghunath Nandi. "This match which will determine the rest of the competition for us."

Assam Police Blues is unknown to Black Panthers, but Nandi said his team need to focus on their own performance.

“It’s more about how we play on the day,” he explained.

The kick-off is at 2 pm.
