Goa look to pile more misery on NorthEast

Bambolim, Jan 13: Two Indian head coaches will lock horns in the ISL for the first time when FC Goa take on lowly NorthEast United FC here on Friday.
Under Derek Pereira, Goa won their last game against Chennaiyin FC after coming out with a point against Kerala Blasters before that.
The Gaurs are ninth in the table with 12 points from 10 games and Pereira would hope to start the second leg on the front foot.
“I am happy that Indian coaches are getting an opportunity to lead. If you give them a bit more opportunity and exposure they will flourish more and can prove themselves in the highest levels,” Pereira said.
For Khalid Jamil-coached NorthEast, who are sitting a rung below Goa at 10th place, a loss to Jamshedpur FC saw them without a win in the last three games.
Jamil can take heart from the fact that Deshorn Brown has found his scoring boots.
NorthEast beat Goa 2-1 the first time the two sides met this season. (PTI)
