But that was against Churchill Brothers, who have blown hot and cold this season. Leimapokpam Nandakumar Singh's TRAU are more disciplined, as shown by their almost perfect home record (5 wins, 1 draw). On the eve of the match, Nandakumar said, "The boys are eager to play well against big teams. " He also admitted that the home record adds to the team's confidence. "We've never lost at home this season and that feeling helps in taking on a top side like Sreenidi. " From the exuberance of Salam Johson Singh to the calm finishing of Komron Tursunov up front, from the youth of Sagolsem Bikash Singh to the experience of Gerson Vieira in the midfield, from the staunchness of Manash Protim Gogoi to the strength of captain Gerard Williams in defence - TRAU are a tougher proposition. They did look off-colour against a wasteful Mohammedan Sporting in their last outing, but it would be wrong for Sreenidi to take that result too seriously.
" The depth of Sreenidi's squad does not need reiteration this late in the league. David Castaneda Munoz is still leading the scorers' list and backup striker Louis Ogana is also among the goals. Rosenberg Gabriel has been one of the best Indian wingers this season, Lalromawia has impressed too after returning from injury.
