Prayag United might have begun their I-League campaign with two wins on the trot but their coach Sanjoy Sen feels that his side are a long way away from realising the dream of title finish. "My team has made a positive start in the I-League with six points from two matches but it is still a long way to go," Sen said after reaching to the capital with his players for their third round match against ONGC at Ambedkar Stadium on October 26. "There are 24 rounds left and we will take it match by match."
Sen said he did not want to put the pressure on his players by talking about title aspirations as of now. Prayag have done much better than their two Kolkata rivals East Bengal (four points from two matches) and Mohun Bagan (one point from two matches) so far in the league.
They beat Air India 5-1 in their opening match before stunning Mohun Bagan 2-1 in the second round. At present, Prayag United are sharing the top spot with Dempo on six points from two matches. ONGC, meanwhile, have lost both their opening matches, 2-3 to Pune FC and 0-5 to Churchill Brothers and will be desperate to pick up their first points against Prayag United.
Coach Subrata Bhattacharya said he would hope his foreign recruits ó Katsumi Yuso (Japan), I K Echukwu and Oneyama Eke (both from Nigeria) ó and young players like Robin Gurung, Bilfrang Nazary and K V Lalu rise to the occasion.
