Churchill Brothers confident of defeating Viva Kerala again

Kozhikode, Feb 3 (UNI) Jubilant after its resounding 5-0 win against Viva Kerala at Margao, Churchill Brothers expects a repeat performance when both the sides lock horns in the 15th round of I-League here tomorrow.

''We will strive for showcasing a repeat performance and the boys are in a upbeat mood to go for it,'' Churchill coach Kareem Bencherifa said.

Mr Bencherifa said the team, comprising top-scorer Nigerian Odaffe Okkole and other foreign recruits Emboyo Eyyoli and Kalu, were gearing up for another memorable victory.

The encounter, however, seems to be tough, as the home side was expected to put up stiff resistance to earn full points and to avoid relegation.

The team would focus on attack by taking advantage of home conditions, coach A M Sreedharan said. The team's defence line-up included, foreign recruits Tutu George, A Awadu, Baba Tunde and Wisdom Abbey.

Churchill was at second position with 26 points from 14 outings, while Viva could manage only 12 points from as many outings in the premier league.
