Panaji: Goas played 1-1 draw against SC East Bengal in the Indian Super League (ISL) at the Tilak Maidan Stadium, Vasco on Wednesday. After the game, SC East Bengal coach Robbie Fowler said his players were brilliant especially after being reduced to 10 men in the match.
During the post-match press conference, Fowler said, "I am delighted. We played against a good team. We probably lacked possession a bit but we deserved it. We probably had the best chances. They obviously had some chances themselves but ours were more clear cut and there's were more from set-pieces. Our players were brilliant especially after going down to 10 men. I am delighted with a point but we obviously wanted more." He further said, "We played with 10 men. When you play with 10 men and you are playing a good team who play good football of course you are going to be behind the ball. We defended massively and I proud of the way they worked with each other and helped each other. It was a tough game and I think we did not deserve to lose in any way."
In the ISL points table, East Bengal is currently at ninth place with seven points from nine games. The side will next take on Bengaluru FC on Saturday.
