The win on Sunday leaves them in 10th, two places above the drop zone. And the Sierra Leone-born has assured that they will compete to avoid demotion.

Experience defender David Simbo has said his side Neroca will continue their fight to stay in the Indian I League after their 2-1 win over former club Gokulam Kerala FC on Sunday.

The former Mighty BlackpoolMotala, and Trelleborg defender has been a revelation for Neroca FC in the India second tier.

“It was a difficult win, but we were pleased with the result. We are going to continue this fight until the end. In the end, we must stay in the Indian I League,” the Neroca skipper told FSL News.

After RoundGlass Punjab’s wobble in Delhi, it was Gokulam Kerala’s turn, the Malabarians suffering a 2-1 loss to NEROCA on Sunday.

NEROCA went into this game with back-to-back wins at home and yet were unfancied against opposition who have been on an upward curve at the business end of the season. 

Sweden Fernandes and Mirjalol Kosimov scored for the home side in the 11th and 64th minute, respectively, before Aminou Bouba reduced the deficit for the away side.

However, the home side held to win their fourth straight home game.
