Vasco: Churchill Brothers face the tricky prospect of facing a team who don’t have the same fears of relegation as they entertain Chennai City FC at the Tilak Maidan, Vasco here on Saturday.

Churchill are still not mathematically safe even though they sit comfortably in sixth place with a five-point cushion over bottom placed Mumbai FC. However, DSK Shivajians, Chennai City FC and Minerva who are 7th, 8th and 9th respectively in the league are all immune from relegation. Leaving Churchill Brothers and Mumbai FC to fight it out.

“I was in the same situation last year. I was with a team that had no relegation. It is something odd in our football I feel. With so many teams who are immune to relegation and only two teams are fighting it out, whereas there are three teams below us. It is something the AIFF has to work on,” Churchill coach Derrick Pereira suggested.

Under Derrick, the team had an incredible turnaround, but they have been winless in the last three matches and the veteran coach feels that the team have worked on their mistakes from past encounters especially from the 1-3 defeat against table toppers Aizawl FC.

“We had a bad match last time against Aizawl but we have worked on it. There were some defensive mistakes but we have corrected them. We will give our best and hopefully we will get three points on Saturday,”  the coach added.
