“This is possibly the worst defeat of Goa under my coaching. We have to work hard and Improve,” the Spaniard said.
However, the Spanish coach will take heart from the fact that they are playing in front of their fans given the 100 per cent record they enjoy this season on home soil.
The good news for Goa is also the return of star striker Ferran Corominas after after serving his one-match suspension. His presence will certainly bolster their attack given the lethal form he is in with six goals and four assists in 350 minutes.
“It is evident that Corominas is a very important player for us and its good news that he will be back for us. But if you rely so much on one individual then it’s unlikely that you will win a lot of things. We need to overcome adversities with or without the players,” said Lobera.
It will be interesting to see if Lobera decides to change personnel in key positions especially with Brandon Fernandes getting back to full fitness.
The game against Delhi Dynamos will also see Goa’s very own Romeo Fernandes return to Fatorda. The winger, who enjoyed a purple patch under Zico, joined Delhi last season and since then, has had a patchy form. It remains to be seen if Fernandes would start as although he has travelled with the team, he has only just recovered from a finger injury.
