“May The Best Team Win The Cup,” Says Dave Rogers

DSFC Staff, May 6, 2017

DSK Shivajians begin their Federation Cup 2017 encounter against a formidable Mohun Bagan AC at the Barabati Stadium, Cuttack on the 8th of May.

In what promises to be a baptism by fire in Cup football for Dave Rogers’ young side, DSK Shivajians will take heart from their fighting performances in the league which has seen them finish a credible seventh in the I-League.

With some free-flowing attacking football on the cards, DSK Shivajians have certainly practiced what they preach, finishing the league second when it comes to possession and attacking numbers.

While stats back the club up, DSK Shivajians will have their work cut-out against a very attacking Mohun Bagan side who have won two of their last three games against Indian opposition. Dave Rogers is, however, unfazed by the challenge.

“Every game we play is an experience. The players have nothing to fear, and they’re free to come here and express themselves on the pitch.”

“Mohun Bagan are a really good side and a tough team to beat. We gave them a really good game at the Balewadi earlier in the season where we even had a goal dissalowed. Having said that, may the best team go on and win the cup,” said Dave Rogers, First Team Manager, DSK Shivajians.  

The Match is to be played on the 8th of May at 7 PM at the Barabati Stadium, Cuttack and will be telecast LIVE on Ten 2.
