"They are a good team. It is always difficult to play against such a quality side. In terms of the Top 7 Race, it is a crucial match for us. They are fast and energetic and quite similar to us. Hopefully, we can get the win and start collecting points," the head coach said. Aizawl FC head coach Yan Law said his players are giving their best. "I am proud of boys. They are giving their absolute best. Some results are not going in our favour but we have created many chances. Hopefully, we can convert them in the coming matches," Law mentioned.

Forward David Lalhlansanga accompanied the coach in the pre-match conference and he looked confident and motivated ahead of the match. "We are playing well but making a few mistakes here and there. We hope to minimize them and get the victory," David said. Law expressed his respect for TRAU.

"We have seen them playing in the last few matches. The point table doesn't show what they deserve. They have a good set of players who can change the game. We have to avoid silly mistakes. Our primary goal is to keep a clean sheet and score as many as possible, " the coach concluded.
