NorthEast United FC will seek a change in fortune when it takes on Gokulam Kerala FC in a Super Cup qualifying match on Thursday.

“A Cup game is always a war and we’re approaching tomorrow’s game likewise. We had a frustrating phase of two months towards the business end of the league as we lost many games. But, now we are here to do something good in the Super Cup,” he said.

Portuguese defender José Gonçalves said: “There’s absolutely no difference between us. It’s warm but we have to be at the top of our game to churn out a positive result.”

On the other hand, I-League giant-killer Gokulam Kerala FC, which had stunned Mohun Bagan and East Bengal, is also approaching the match with all seriousness.

“We didn’t start well in the league but once we did, we showed our worth to everyone. We want to continue the momentum tomorrow,” coach Bino George said.

Salman K, who proved himself as a lynchpin for the Keralite outfit stated that it doesn't want to let go the opportunity cheaply.

“After playing University football, I-League was a massive stage for me and now we have the Super Cup. It’s a terrific platform for all of us and we don’t want to let it go cheaply,” the defender stressed.
