With Aizawl FC needing a draw against Shillong Lajong to secure a historic I-League title on April 30, the All India Football Federation’s (AIFF) Integrity Officer Javed Siraj will reach Shillong a day in advance to ensure fair play.

Terming it a “routine visit”, AIFF vice-president Subrata Dutta said: “This time he’s going a day in advance.”

While there will be a lot at stake for Aizawl FC, fifth-placed Shillong Lajong will have nothing to lose or gain as the team is neither in title hunt nor under a relegation threat.

Aizawl’s loss will be an advantage for Mohun Bagan which will face Chennai City in its last round match here as all eyes will be on the two North Eastern sides Aizawl and Shillong Lajong.
