Bengaluru FC confident of turnaround against Aizawl (Preview)

Bengaluru, May 2 (IANS) Coach Ashley Westwood is confident of his side turning around a 1-2 first-leg deficit as Bengaluru FC host Aizawl FC in the reverse fixture of the Federation Cup quarter-finals here on Tuesday.

The I-League champions conceded in the 90th minute in Aizawl on Saturday but came away with a vital away goal that makes the tie interesting.

“We are confident of turning it around. We have a good record at home and a completely fit squad to choose from,” said Westwood while addressing the media at the pre-game press conference on Monday.

He said his team needs to take his chances.

“I’m sure we’re going to create chances tomorrow and hopefully we’ll take a few.”

Bengaluru landed in the city on Sunday night after a twelve-hour journey from Aizawl. They will play their fourth match in 10 days. But Westwood was confident that his squad will recover for the game.

“The lads are alright. Travel does take a toll and we had a twelve-hour journey from door to door. But it’s the same for both teams. We have a good squad who can all come into contention,” he said.

“We may ring a couple of changes or we may just reload and go with the same squad given there wasn’t much that went wrong on Saturday. We’ll recover well, eat well and we’ll be ready for tomorrow whichever team we put out.”
