Young guns from Indian Arrows will be aiming to make a course correction after their opening round loss to Chennai City when they take on Shillong Lajong in an I-League encounter at the iconic Barabati Stadium here on Monday.
Cuttack’s iconic Barabati stadium will host its first ever Hero I-League game with the All India Football Federation’s development side India Arrows opting for the Odhisa venue this season as their home venue.
The Arrows were resoundingly beaten 1-4 by Chennai City FC and coach Floyd Pinto will look to get their campaign back on track against a Shillong side which also, like them, will be one of the two teams having an all India representation this season.
Shillong Lajong, however, have put on much better performance compared to their Monday hosts in the two games that they have played in so far.
They beat Aizawl FC 2-1 in their opener, before going down to Quess East Bengal (QEB) 1-3 at home. That result, however, did not adequately reflect the effort of the young Lajong boys as they dominated possession as well as chances created against the far more experienced visitors.
