Laggards Shillong Lajong host Indian Arrows in battle for pride

Shillong: Laggards Shillong Lajong and Indian Arrows will lock horns with little more than pride to play for in an I-League clash at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Sunday.

Shillong, who chose not to go with foreign recruits this year and instead play a young in-house side with Alison Kharsyntiew in charge, find themselves at the bottom of the 11-team pile, suffering nine losses and conceding a whopping 33 goals – by far the highest in the league, in their 11 games so far.

Their only win at home came against Aizawl in October last year, and they have been at the receiving end of two 1-6 scorelines and also went down to their Sunday opponents in the first leg away from home. IANS
