"I would want my players to continue the momentum. We beat Chennaiyin FC 4-1 in our previous match. We want to score goals tomorrow also. That would compensate our scoring of just one goal in our first two matches," Veldhoven said at the pre-match press conference yesterday.
"We played very well against Chennaiyin FC but in football you never know. We cannot be complacent and we have to see that we build on the momentum," he added.
Asked if the NorthEast United players would have the advantage as many of their players have been playing together for some time as part of I-League side Shillong Lajong, Veldhoven said, "To a certain extent yes, but after five or six games, every team will be the same. Their will be no advantage by then."
Meanwhile, NorthEast United coach Ricki Herbert has not still ruled out the possibility that marquee player Joan Capdevila will play a role. "We will wait till tomorrow morning and take a call on him before the match," he said.
