AFC Cup: East Bengal aim for win in Jordan

East Bengal Club have a tough assignment later today against Al Orouba of Jordan at the Prince Mohammed International Stadium in Amman. The red-and-gold have lost all their four matches so far, but after Salgaocar's first win yesterday the hope is that the Kolkata giants will follow in their path.

East Bengal coach Trevor Morgan sounded positive at the pre-match press conference, "Although we have so far got no points in this competition we would go all out to win tomorrow's game. In our home match we were denied full points due to some poor refereeing."

"Although we cannot qualify we will give our best which would enable us to do well in the remainder of the season," Trevor added.

Meanwhile captain Sanju Pradhan, who has been nominated for Fan Player of the Year, added, "We will give off our best in the match which would inspire us to do well in rest of the matches."

For Al Orouba the match has special significance then in third place they need the three points to keep the pressure on table toppers Arbil from Iraq and Kuwaitis Kazma SC.

Al Orouba coach Mohammed Saleh said before the game, "East Bengal is a strong and organized team, moreover they do not have any pressure and would go all out to win the match. This would be one of the most difficult matches for us and we will have to be at our best to win this match. Three points from this game would facilitate our qualification chances otherwise we would be eliminated."
