Quess East Bengal FC did have a shortage in the centre back position with only inexperienced Mehtab Singh, Asheer Akhtar and newly signed Monotosh Chakladar among the ranks. The team management was quick to act as they had called in former captain Gurwinder Singh, who joined the training sessions two weeks back and finally has been included in the I-League squad ahead of the game against Churchill Brothers.
Coach Mario Rivera could even start Gurwinder Singh in the game against Churchill Brothers as the defensive pairing of Mehtab Singh and Asheer Akhtar has been fragile and have not been able to stop the leaking of goals. Asheer Akhtar also has 3 bookings to his name and one more could see him sit out for the next game. The team will already be missing the services of Kassim Aidara against Churchill Brothers as he picked up his 4th yellow card against TRAU FC.
Gurwinder Singh played for 8 seasons donning the Red and Gold colours from 2010/11 to 2017/18. He has 81 appearances for the club in I-League. He has been given the number 6 in the squad, with his number 16 already taken up by Kassim Aidara.
