Gokulam Kerala FC vs RoundGlass Punjab FC: PREVIEW
Gokulam head Coach Vincenzo Annese admitted that they cannot afford to commit the same mistakes which they did against Chennai City. In the match against Chennai City, Gokulam had taken an early lead courtesy Dennis Antwi but gave away two goals owing to defensive errors.
“The first game was a nervous one for us. We had too many missed passes and we did not keep a lot of possession. It seemed like we were afraid to win. We rushed a lot and this cannot happen in our next match against RoundGlass Punjab FC,”Annese said
Punjab on the other hand would look forward to keep their winning momentum.
“It is very important to keep the momentum going. Once you get the win, that match is over and you look to win the next match. We got back to the drawing board and saw things we could have done better in the win over Aizawl,”– said Punjab head coach Curtis Fleming
