Mumbai F C need to regroup ahead of clash with JCT

Mumbai, Nov 24 (UNI) The new entrants to the I-League, Mumbai Football Club, who had a brilliant start to their season, seemed to have fallen off a bit and need to regroup as they take on JCT, Phagwara in the tenth round, to be played at the Cooperage here tomorrow.

The Mumbai F C will have to tighten their defence, which has been the main problem for them in the last few matches, with Sanjay Parte, Selwyn Fernandes and Anthony Fernandes, allowing too much space for the rival forwards to move in.

Goalkeeper Kalyan Chaubey also looks short on confidence, when the ball is passed back by his defenders.

On the other hand, JCT after a slow start to their season, look to be coming into their own with a neat win over East Bengal in the last round.

They have Eduardo Da Silva upfront a livewire and complimenting him is Balwant Singh. They also have a gritty defence, which will make it more difficult for the home team to break them.
