"Our goal at the moment is to make it to the next stage which is the quarter finals of the AFC Cup."

Striker Anthony Wolfe said "We have all prepared well and will play with a positive frame of mind, and go out on the field with the believe that we will get all 3 points."

Churchill Brothers Goa will be without Lenny Rodrigues, Saran Singh, Asley Fernandes and Anthony Periera due to injury while Sanjay Balmuchu misses out due to a suspension.
